I'm building an ia32 server which will be running RAID 5 over three 40
GB disks.  We're using 4 RAID partitions (/var, /home, /usr, and /),
all using XFS.  We booted using an NFS root, initialized the RAID
devices, made an XFS filesystem on all of them, mounted them, then
rsynced over our NFS root image to the target filesystems.

This all worked fine.  However, after rebooting, when we tried to
mount one of the arrays (which was /var), we got:

Jul 28 01:03:27 debian kernel: Start mounting filesystem: md(9,1)
Jul 28 01:03:31 debian kernel: Starting XFS recovery on filesystem: md(9,1) 
(dev: 9/1)
Jul 28 01:03:31 debian kernel: XFS: xlog_recover_process_data: bad clientid
Jul 28 01:03:31 debian kernel: XFS: log mount/recovery failed
Jul 28 01:03:31 debian kernel: XFS: log mount failed

The other partitions mounted correctly; I am confused as to why just
one of the partitions would fail.  We ran xfs_repair /dev/md2, and it
didn't report any errors.  After that, mounting the partition worked
just fine:

Jul 28 01:03:49 debian kernel: Start mounting filesystem: md(9,1)
Jul 28 01:04:04 debian kernel: Ending clean XFS mount for filesystem: md(9,1)

Any ideas?
