I think you may be misunderstanding something about how XFS works. 
"fsck" doesn't do anything on XFS volumes because its journaling layer handles
filesystem integrity checks at startup.

However, if you still want/need to manually repair an XFS filesystem you can use the
"xfsrepair" tool, which has been around a long time and works very well.
