You are moving between little endian and big endian machines. While
metadata is always big endian in xfs, the log contents are not. 
If you are sure you did a clean unmount on ia32, try running
xfs_repair -L on the filesystem. But if you can I would
mount and unmount it on ia32 just in case before this.
