Yes, I did remember to do this. Everything seems to be ok, but i am not able
to mount this xfs-partition because of the bad superblock.
I saw that there exists a patch for IRIX that fits to the same problem: bad
superblock and fsck (xfs_repair) cannot find a valid secondary superblock.
Maybe linux-xfs has the same problem?!
