The only time you need a boot filesystem is if your system depends on
kernel code that is built as a module.

I ran XFS for 5 years, never had a boot filesystem, and never needed
I just made sure my kernel builds supported everything I needed at boot
and for repairs.
Now I use a boot filesystem, but not because I need it. I use it
because so many scripts and tools expect it now and I just decided to
It also helps make sure your kernel stays below any kind of BIOS limit
on logical boot sectors.
