Because the XFS raid partition was completely hosed. No data, no
superblock (or whatever XFS calls it), nothing understandable remained
of the filesystem. No log data either, just a hard lockup on the
server. It looked like a hardware failure.
The exact same hardware has performed without a glitch for nearly a year
now with JFS.
However, I am running a 2.6.15 self-compiled vanilla kernel on a FC2
box, so much of my stuff is pretty dated. It's possible that I've
updated the kernel since the crash as well; I can't recall.
Given the variety of responses you're seeing, I'd guess that XFS is
probably maturing very quickly, and the problems you and I are seeing
may be due to an older version.
