The CentOS project has prebuilt xfs kernel modules as well as xfsprogs rpms for CentOS4 and CentOS5 in the CentOSPlus repository.

These originated from Eric's RPMS, but they are quite old, have known bugs at this point, and are not well maintained. Newer versions of RHEL5 have brought better options for xfs use, at least as far as kernelspace:

* Fri Apr 03 2009 Don Zickus <dzickus@redhat.com> [2.6.18-138.el5]
- [fs] xfs: misc upstream fixes (Eric Sandeen ) [470845]
- [fs] xfs: fix compat ioctls (Eric Sandeen ) [470845]
- [fs] xfs: new aops interface (Eric Sandeen ) [470845]
- [fs] xfs: backport to rhel5.4 kernel (Eric Sandeen ) [470845]
- [fs] xfs:  update to codebase (Eric Sandeen ) [470845]</code>

Aside from the RHEL5.4 xfs.ko in the x86_64 kernel - when in doubt, using the Centos RPMs is probably the best approach for now. These can be used with RHEL as well, but of course this is not supported by Red Hat.
