ext2 probably handles bad blocks better. The XFS filesystem shuts down on
error. Ext2 may stay up and note that the sector is moved and the data is ok.
It might be possible that xfs could be made to respect this re allocation
of a bad sector and perhaps not shut down.
Can you verify that the filesystem was shutdown on error or not?
dmesg would verify that if that is the case.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
