no that makes no sense at all, if / is hosed your box won't boot, if
you don't have a rescue disk with xfs_repair (or whatever fsck goes
with the filesystem your using) your a loon.
xfsrestore would not have helped you anyway, unless you had a dump of
/ handy. xfs_repair has no symlinks in /usr (neither should
dump/restore, Nate just did that because his original packages were
broken and put them in /usr, he just didn't want to break anyones
scripts when fixing it).
