The only way to fix this is to move data around to free up space
below 1TB. Find your oldest data (i.e. that was around before even
the first grow) and move it off the filesystem (move, not copy).
Then if you copy it back on, the data blocks will end up above 1TB
and that should leave you with plenty of space for inodes below 1TB.

With volumes bigger and bigger, should this procedure be mentioned in the xfs_growfs manpage or in the XFS FAQ?
