Yes, it has. But another (old) partition does not have ATTR2 enabled. And 
the error is the same when I try to set ATTR2. And the funny thing is, 
after that, version report ATTR2 as set.

All my partitions have been created on RHEL5 (some are even older). On a 
new partition (created on RHEL6) I can set ATTR2 over and over again 
without any error reported. Should I backup everything, reformat all 
partitions and restore everything?

3.1.1 and 3.1.7

Thank you, but I know that. In fact it was the first thing I tried: can 
the filesystem be be mounted if I add attr2 is in fstab. And I was able to 
do so. Still, ATTR2 was not reported for the partition I was talking 
above (without ATTR2 reported by version).

But that's not the point. I see an error message here "Superblock has 
>>mismatched<< features2 fields". And another one ">>failed<< to set 
versionnum in AG 1".
Still, xfs_repair does not see anything wrong with the filesystem. So 
who's wrong? xfs_repair or xfs_db?
An most important: it's possible in the future to loose some data?
