HW RAID may exacerbate the problem. XFS is absolutely, definitely not
"brutal power off" safe. All linux systems from this century are
perfectly able to turn themselves off properly at a single press of the
power button; the only safe options are educating the users or mounting
the filesystem read-only.

And yes, the ls garbled output is caracteristic of a filesystem
