In addition to Ed's kernel debs and the XFS userspace - ie.
xfsprogs, xfsdump, attr packages - you'll also want a recent
mount package (supports mount by-UUID and mount-by-label for
XFS, documents the XFS mount options, no need to use "-t xfs"
with mount, etc); and also the latest quota package which
supports XFS's notion of journaled quota - which Michael has
just uploaded to unstable in the last few days.

Hope this helps.
