Do XFS' barriers work if the file system is created on an LVM2 logical volume?
XFS / LVM

device-mapper doesn't pass the barriers down, so no. (Actually it asserts
that it doesn't support barriers, which is safer: the fs can take that
into account rather than firing off barriers which are just ignored).
(Maybe this has changed recently, but this was the state of affairs a
month or so back.)

[ 51.404922] Filesystem "dm-0": Disabling barriers, not supported by the underlying device
[27138.731115] Filesystem "dm-1": Disabling barriers, not supported by the underlying device
Even though I know from before my time of using dm-crypt that only one of sda or sdb does not support barriers at the hardware level.
