XFS quota works differently, if you mount with quota options and the
on disk data says quotas were not used during the last mount then the
kernel code inside xfs will scan the filesystem and rebuild the quota
information automatically - there should be a log message to this
p.s. does this mean you are over your problem with the root inode going
