after my posts on the xfs mailing list, I had my xfs filesystems in a usable 
state. It has however taken me a week of recompiling stuff (gentoo) to 
recover from the filesystem damage :(

Right now i'm back to running one disk, so I dont know if I'll have the same 
problems when I next try to expand my raid onto the second disk, but I'll let 
you know when I do. I'll probably sync the disks manually before letting evms 
near it, as a safety measure next time.

However, If you're in a situation to set up evms with raid1 accross both disks 
from the start, then do that. It's what I did on my debian server and that's 
worked wonderfully (just read the install guide and make sure you have the 
raid1 patch if neccecary!) :D
