We seen in-memory corruption on two XFS filesystem on a server heartbeat 
cluster of one of our customers:

We plan to do a takeover so that the server which appears to have memory 
errors can be memtested. 

After the takeover we would like to make sure that the XFS filesystems are 
intact. Is it possible to do so without taking the filesystem completely 

I thought about mounting read only and it might be the best choice available, 
but then it will *fail* write accesses. I would prefer if these are just 

I tried xfs_freeze -f on my laptop home directory, but then did not machine to 
get it check via xfs_check or xfs_repair -nd... is it possible at all?
