Yes, XFS does work--it is just a filesystem, like any other.
To make unification more space-effecient--(where multiple vservers are
sharing the same files by hard-linking, but if they modify a shared file, a
new file is actually created)--the Ext2/Ext3 filesystem code has been hacked
slightly to allow for an additional flag called `immutable-may-unlink' which
allows this to happen.
Whilst this extra `immutable-may-unlink' feature will not with on XFS, it is
not required for using vservers.
