Hmm, I suspect it is not the same problem - but let me guess, this is
the system where you cannot run xfs_repair since there is no other
disk, or device present?
Could you try what Ralf did, run xfs_db -r on the device (will work
on a mounted fs). Then run the blockget -n command - this appears to
do some consistency checks.
