Now I tried to make xfs as BOOTFS on alpinelinux-3.2.3. All seems good,
syslinux boots it but initramfs lacks kernel modules xfs depend on. So it
can't mount root filesystem.

Then I upgrade installation media to the edge and made the same
test-installs with btrfs & xfs boot partition.
It doesn't boot at all. I see the only SYSLINUX info-line and
virtual-machine perfomance meters shows 100% cpu loading.

It seems that something broke in the new alpinelinux version :(
