Yep, XFS checks data integrity after a crash. It checks faster than any of the Linux filesystems, so force yourself to not blink or you will miss it during the process.

It does not matter what boot loader you are using.

You can use your Linux install CD and go into rescue mode. You can also use Knoppix to check it.
