  Under IRIX 6.2, get the latest XFS rollup patch and install it.
  (At the time of this writing, the latest XFS rollup patch was patch
  1768.)  This patch comes with xfs_repair, a tool that can often fix
  corrupted XFS filesystems.  (If the partition you wish to repair is
  your boot partition, you will have to boot from the miniroot that
  comes with the patch and run xfs_repair from it.)  Actual installation
  of the patch requires the installation of one of the recent kernel
  rollup patches; read the XFS rollup patch release notes before doing
  anything else with it.

  Under the 6.5.x release stream, 'xfs_repair' and 'xfs_check' are
  installed by default as part of eoe.sw.base. Please note that xfs
  check and repair operations are performed on unmounted filesystems.
  See the xfs_repair(1) manpage for details. Also, it is best to
  do an initial scan on a damaged filesystem using 'xfs_repair -n',
  (no modify mode) as extremely corrupted filesystems can occasionally
  cause an xfs_repair to fail with a core dump.
