Ah! You're absolutely right, inode64 did the trick.
Isn't it a kind of bug? Of course normally you would mount filesystems
from fstab, but for a temporary one like this I didn't do that. Still,
having xfs issuing not even a warning smells like a bug, even if they
might say it's a "feature by design".
So if you have an external 2TB drive from a friend and mount it on your
PC, you can't tell if inode64 was used or not? And if you mount without
that option you could destroy contents? In my case it was "easy" to see
there are fs problems, but what if such inodes are only used in subdirs?
Even with this "easy seeable" problem I didn't have the idea of a
missing inode64 option.
