Adding Federico's comment... Some Adadptec Controller firmware versions will 
pass incorrect device parameters to the linux kernel. The kernel log output 
misled me to believe is was a corrupt filesystem or partition map, however it 
was just an adaptec bug. 

Adaptac has a fix procedure for this at: 

Below is the my kernel's dmesg output. After following Adaptec's procedure, the 
errors went away and I was able to mount the filesystem and see all of my 
existing data.
mount: /dev/sda: can't read superblock
Mount Error at /dev/sdj. Is filesystem realtime? Need a File System? 
attempt to access beyond end of device
sda: rw=0, want=YYYY, limit=XXXX
I/O error in filesystem ("sda") meta-data dev sdj block 0xZZZZ
("xfs_read_buf") error 5 buf count 512
XFS: size check 2 failed

can you send along the results of:

        # xfs_db -r -c "sb 0" -c "print" /dev/sda8?

        # cat /proc/partitions

... and does the hardware raid have a funky sector size?
