Ok. I will go the safe route, recreate the file system, and restore the data.

Is there any way to convert from external log to internal log on RHEL 5.6?
Try dump-mkfs-restore - there's no simple way of converting an
existing filesystem.  At least, not without highly dangerous offline
manual xfs_db surgery that could corrupt the fs....

I tried running xfs_growfs -i but it complains saying

xfs_growfs: failed to access external log for /dev/sdc

and the man page says -i is not implemented. I am using xfsprogs
version 3.1.5.
Yup, not implemented and as such not supported.
