Hello,
This problem was already reported to the list, but searching the archive,
I haven't found any solution.

I am using Gentoo Linux with 2.4.17 kernel on a VIA chipset motherboard 
(Athlon processor) and a two disc RAID 0 array (Promise chip on the 
mainboard).

I set up a XFS partition, I am able to use it (I am really delighted with the 
results of the performance tests by bonnie++ :+)), but if I unmount
it, I am no longer able to remount it.

The log shows :
*********************
XFS mounting filesystem ataraid(114,3)
Starting XFS recovery on filesystem: ataraid(114,3) (dev: 114/3)
XFS: xlog_recover_process_data: bad clientid
XFS: log mount/recovery failed
XFS: log mount failed
*********************



When I do xfs_repair /dev/ataraid/disc0/part3 I get :
*********************
xfs_repair: warning - cannot set blocksize on block device 
/dev/ataraid/disc0/part3: Invalid argument
Phase 1 - find and verify superblock...
Phase 2 - using internal log
        - zero log...
ERROR: The filesystem has valuable metadata changes in a log which needs to
be replayed.  Mount the filesystem to replay the log, and unmount it before
re-running xfs_repair.  If you are unable to mount the filesystem, then use
the -L option to destroy the log and attempt a repair.
Note that destroying the log may cause corruption -- please attempt a mount
of the filesystem before doing this.
*********************




But when I try xfs_repair -L /dev/ataraid/disc0/part3 :
*********************
xfs_repair: warning - cannot set blocksize on block device 
/dev/ataraid/disc0/part3: Invalid argument

*********************

And everything works without any problems - until next unmount/mount...

I am pretty sure I didn't screw up anything in my kernel configuration,
the hard disks are 2 new 40GB Maxtor 6L040J2. I am confused.
