As I said, it could have been a kernel bug, or maybe I simply didn't

do that as I explained before.





I think that your expectation is unreasonable. XFS was designed for machines where popping in a working hard drive was feasible. Making a disk layout adaptable to any arbitrary block going bad is more work than you might think, and for their intended market (not laptops) they did the right thing.

You can buy cables that allow you to connect laptop drives to desktops.
