It screwed that up so badly, that Suse stopped supporting XFS because grub
doing direct disk
read/writes on a live file system wasn' supported.

I was told that was fixed, but XFS support at SuSE never recovered to where
it was.

This is simply FALSE.

openSUSE has always supported XFS.

What was broken was installing grub to an XFS partition, which is very
different than what you said.
And it was not the fault of openSUSE, it was an upstream issue that has been
solved.
