# man xfs_repair
-d Repair dangerously. Allow xfs_repair to repair an XFS filesystem
mounted read only. This is typically done on a root fileystem
from single user mode, immediately followed by a reboot.
/dev/hda3 on /mnt type xfs (ro)
# xfs_repair /dev/hda3
xfs_repair: /dev/hda3 contains a mounted filesystem
fatal error -- couldn't initialize XFS library
# xfs_repair -d /dev/hda3
