No such feature exists. If you see bad blocks, your drive can no longer remap bad blocks internally. It will only get worse. Your drive is dying, and you need a new one.

Hi,

Is there a possibility to
- either use mkfs.xfs with a "-c = check for bad blocks" flag, OR
- feed in the output of the standard "badblocks" program in mkfs.xfs?

root # rpm -q xfsprogs
xfsprogs-2.5.6-1

Cheers,
Gaspar
