I've never had problems once grub was installed; however, getting
grub installed when /boot is XFS is a pain. There are various bugs
about this and no solution, e.g. #239111, 243835, #246111, #309218.

XFS in /boot is also a pain when things like hibernate make
last-minute changes before the system is taken down: #317479.

I still use it. :)
