A live CD accidently formatted my XFS partition (presumably with mkfs.xfs), and 
I have an empty partition now. The disk is almost intact, other than an attempt 
to run xfs_repair (created a lost+found directory). I had no 
backup/dump/whatsoever. Theoretically, it should be possible since allocation 
groups act independently AFAIK. Is there any chance for me to rebuild the old 
FS using existing tools?
