You'll need to talk to the util-linux folks about that, and get the
kernel hooks in place.

i.e. it's not something the xfs team can do, it requires a more global
solution.

I agree that it would be nice.  If nothing else a "please see your syslog
for more info" would be helpful.  But you're asking on the wrong list.  :)
