My only comment is that I don't know how this ever worked... if it did, I
think you were just lucky. :) The XFS superblock signature / magic
number should be "XFSB" in the first 4 bytes on the partition, and they're
not there in your image - lilo has overwritten it. I'm afraid that
you'll have to find another way to boot, XFS and lilo want to put data in
the same place.
