    I actually tried the xfs_db method to fix my / filesystem (as you had
    outlined in,
    and while it's quite possible that I screwed it up, after a subsequent
    xfs_repair run (which completed successfully and moved lots of stuff
    to /lost+found, as I would expect), the XFS code had serious problems
    with various parts of my filesystem (like "ls /lost+found", which
    would cause lots of errors to be logged, although not a complete fs
    shutdown). After another run through xfs_repair resulted in a
    filesystem that would no longer even successfully boot.

    Unfortunately it was a mostly-full 74GB big-/ partition on my primary
    machine (a laptop), so I don't have a dump of it for you and my report
    is probably pretty useless. :( But on the bright side, virtually all
    of the filesystem was otherwise intact and I was able to get all my
    data off before rebuilding my system.
