My guestimate is somewhere fall 2003.

Could be off by a year though.

Ehm? If you recompile the kernel yourself then what problem is it to select 
XFS under filesystems?

You don't have to patch it yourself perse. There are XFS kernel RPMS out 
there for all sorts of flavors and you can always fetch the CVS tree which 
is up to date with the latest 2.4 or 2.5 tree.

It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
