xfsprogs 2.6.25 w/ xen 2.0.1 has the same problem. Somebody, please test
mkfs.xfs, xfs_check, mkfs.reiserfs and fsck.reiserfs for me with a block 
device exported from Domain-0.

Interestingly the commands work fine on simple files, even in domains other
than Domain-0.

I suspect this is a problem with block-device exporting in linux-xen.

sorry for the broken english :)
