Thanks for the help.

The good news is running -P option works and the FS is ok.
The Bad news is that names of files were lost, all the files were moved to lost+find.
Is there any easy way to recover it, or the solution is the hard way?

Sorry about the xfs_metadump, I ran the xfs_repair, before read all messages.
If it happens again (I hope it doesnt), the first thing I'll do is send it.

Thank you again.

And before that, if you'd like to preserve something for us to
look at, run

# xfs_metadump /dev/blah imagefile

to capture the state of the fs which was causing problems.
