Your post made me check the status of xfsprogs (ie. userspace).
Unfortunately it looks like 11.3 is only going to have xfsprogs 3.0.1
which I think is a shame.
Newer version are out, but most important update I think is 3.1.0 from
January or so: The biggest changes in xfsprogs 3.1.0 were
optimizations in xfs_repair that lead to a much lower memory usage,
and optional use of the blkid library for filesystem detection and
retrieving storage topology information.
xfs_repair prior to 3.1.0 I believe required a linear amount of RAM
for filesystem size. Thus the kernel side of XFS has been ready of
16TB+ partitions for a while, but with only xfsprogs 3.0.1 in 11.3, it
requires a large amount of RAM to run the repair tool.
To my surprise, I don't even see xfsprogs 3.1.0 (or newer) in OBS yet
at all. (Not even a home directory.)
