Can you tell me what kernel you were running again? Was is the 1.2 based
release with a bit older dump and restore?

Just reducing the options. Did you try using the newer userspace
utilities, dump, restore, repair etc.
Do you get a kernel panic/oops during the dump or is is xfsdump that bails
out? You say it's the rootfs that you are trying to dump. It isn't shared
out over NFS perhaps is it?
