I have an experimental patch for it.My biggest concern is as to why is it incompat. AFAICS you don't need any changes to read such a filesystem. Can you comment whether any changes are needed in the code of the reader other than ignoring this bit?

Another XFSv5 feature missing from GRUB, introduced by kernel 4.2 [1] and mkfs.xfs 4.2.0 (-i sparse=0|1) [2]. It is disabled by default in mkfs.xfs up to current xfsprogs 4.7.0-rc and kernel code is experimental, thus not widely used. But in kernel 4.8 will be marked as stable [3] and I guess mkfs.xfs will not take long to enable it by default.

GRUB does not work with volumes created with "-i sparse=1":
(Xubuntu 16.04, 2.02-beta2 plus 1570140, a139188, d3ffeb9, b6e80c7, ff3c200, 049dcfa)
