Since Eric is sat 2 feet from me at the moment, I will reply for him...
This is good (from the point of view of xfs, not from the point of view
of the 3ware drivers). Although come to think of it, the only thing which
is bigger than 1 Tbyte in your configuration is the md device - perhaps
md actually has some issues with 1 Tbyte. In any case, it may be worth
describing the scenario on linux kernel and seeing what people think.

Yes, but the detection process may need some work - ext2 will probably
have radically different behavior on an error. It may throw up on the
filesystem, or you may have to run fsck afterwards to see what happened
to the fs.
