i remarked ext4, after a power failure, often needs a manual fsck, sometimes even resulting in data loss. Is XFS or other filesystems any better? Can I do fsck with xfs from the rescue boot etc.?

I would say nothing (my knowledge)fsck is done by initramfs:$ less /etc/mkinitcpio.conf | grep fsck
# usr, fsck and shutdown hooks.
HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block filesystems keyboard fsck"defragmentation is useless; at least for ext4
