Actually, looks like the superblock is fine, which is good - your
error message seems to be coming from a failed read in the log.

So, your IDE device is returning IO errors - you're in pretty bad shape.
You have two options:
- use dd (or dd_rescue) with error-skipping-mode enabled to get what
data remains off to a working device.  Then run xfs_repair on that.
- restore from your last good backup, probably again to a different
device since the one above looks like its on its last legs.

Yeah, from a quick look that procedure will only help you if you've
got a mountable filesystem, as you noticed.
