Hi Marc,

The filesystem was created a month or so ago using blocksize of 512 and
lazy-count=1, but I have many of those xfs filesystems.

Since this is a production system and I have no backup abilities, I have
to no choice but to reformat the disk now.
I'm not sure about the root cause of your crash, but I just wanted to mention that before you blow away this filesystem, you should probably try repairing it with a recent version of xfs_repair (like 3.0.0).

Also, I have seen similar problems to those described in Debian bug 525880 with xfs_repair not making progress (although I'm running 32-bit), and adding "-P" to the xfs_repair invocation helped in many cases.
