I won't agree with Sean here(1). Most of the time xfs_repair ends with
the expected result; however many distros (particularly centOS) provide
positively ancient versions. You'd better grab a recent version (3.1 or

xfs_repair take more than a couple of hours, even on badly damaged
filesystems in the hundred of terabytes range.
