Read-only XFS support has been committed to FreeBSD-CURRENT.
Write access to XFS is not supported at this time.
The XFS for FreeBSD source code is based off of GPL'd sources
provided by SGI.

You can compile it into your kernel by adding "XFS" to your
kernel config file, or you can "kldload xfs".

If you have an XFS partition on your system, you can try mounting it
mount -t xfs [device] [mntpoint]

Additional utilities such as mkfs.xfs are available in the sysutils/xfsprogs

Many thanks to Alexander Kabaev and Russell Cattelan for
starting and doing most of the work on the XFS for FreeBSD port,
and also to SGI for making the XFS source code freely available.
