Yesterday evening, I booted from a Knoppix Live CD... Knoppix supports loop AES 
encryption too!   
   
So I set up the loop device and mounted the partition successfully! Then I 
copyed everything to a backup partition   
and recreate ( on gentoo) the XFS filesystem (mkfs.xfs) and everything is 
fine...   
   
I have absolutely no idea why the old xfs partition was not "mountable"!   
   
Very suspect for me... but now I am happy to have my data back!
