What are your mount options? Are you using barriers (what does XFS
output in dmesg when mounting the filesystem)? I ask because I've
seen this sort of directory corruption before when using volatile
write caches and yanking the power....

i.e. the corruption could have been caused by the way you reset the
system, not because of the hang. Do you have any information on what
caused the hang?
