I am willing to work on an XFS kernel floppy boot disk, but it would be pointless cine a kernel image with XFS is bloated by about 300K if I'm not mistaken, at least the ones on some of the machines I put XFS into.  There are Reiserfs images avaiable however.

fwiw current cvs boot-floppies (and 3.0.14) support XFS (as well as
ext2, ext3, and reiserfs).  if you boot with a kernel capable of any
of these filesystems and have the corresponding mkfs utility on the
root disk the filesystem will be offered as an option.

if you were insane enough to get a kernel supporting all of ext2,
ext3, xfs, and reiserfs and had all the mkfs utils you would be
offered a choice between all 4.
