This is an odd statement given that XFS (on 32 bit archs) and EXT4 both
currently top out at 16 TiB. Thus moving to EXT4 gains you nothing on a
32 bit machine, and you lose many advantages.
Please define "very large filesystems" and post the specific error
message you received when running xfs_check on this "very large
filesystem" on your 32 bit machine.
The fs was approx 3.5TB.
