XFS doesn't like when 4K device becomes 512b sector based.

Here you are using separate level of tooling - so you have separate dealing
with errors on each device with its own tooling.

lvm2 is not yet capable to handle this stack on its own.

Create XFS on 4K sector device - copy it on 512b and use it.
