Oh, repair on a 300T filesystem -wil-l be painful anywhere, I think, unfortunately.

hm, painful yes, but hopefully not impossible? otherwise if sth. goes wrong on a 300TB fs the only way to fix it would be restoring from backup, no matter how tiny the corruption might be (and xfs_repair could fix it easliy if only the volume was not so big)....

The time & memory requirements for repair on a filesystem of this size are currently extremely large... there have been some rules of thumb for time/memory requirements on this list before, but I don't have them offhand...
