11.6. xfs_repair – Phase 3

Using the AGI btree from phase2, scan the inode tree, processing the unlinked list for deleted inodes and finding possible missing inode clusters.
Walk all the found inodes, recording used filesytem blocks (extents).
For directory inodes, scan the directory structure for more lost inodes.
Any bad inodes are trashed including unrecoverable corrupted directories.
