One of these, maybe?

  kernel: XFS: bad magic number
  kernel: XFS: SB validate failed

They showed up just after the filesystem was mounted.  I can't
spot anything else that seems to be relevant.

The filesystem is still up and running, BTW, and doesn't seem to
be adversely affected.  The error has only occured twice, both
times today.  It's running on top of RAID 5, if that's of

Any suggested course of action?  This is, unfortunately, a
woefully undertested production drive...
