so you had already "grown" the XFS filesystem to use the entire space in 
the volume group?  i didn't see that in the original post, so i was 
assuming you hadn't resized the filesystem yet.  if not, then no data 
will be on that drive and you can safely remove the physical volume from 
the volume group.  otherwise, i'm not sure, since i don't have any 
experience with XFS, just ReiserFS and ext3
