This would be the corresponding behavior to a -m option on mkfs.ext2.

Any way to adjust this after a mkfs.xfs?  Like the tune2fs -m behavior?

Any hints?

AFAIK - only way you can do that is to use loop device and mount for that user a file of required size.

Other way is to create separate partition - a bit better if
such users is only few. Partition table is limited size.
