The original problem is almost certainly that your boot manager put
something on block zero of your xfs partition; this is where the xfs
superblock lives, so it was corrupted.
What version of xfsprogs do you have? I'll make sure the ftp site has
the latest version packaged up; you should get the latest if you don't
have it already.
If you send the output of your xfs_repair run, that might offer some
