Did you remount /foo after modifying /etc/fstab?

BTW: http://linux.die.net/man/8/xfs_quota

check the QUOTA ADMINISTRATION section:

"The quotacheck command has no effect on XFS filesystems. The first
time quota accounting is turned on (at mount time), XFS does an
automatic quotacheck internally; afterwards, the quota system will
always be completely consistent until quotas are manually turned off."

And the EXAMPLES section:

# mount -o uquota /dev/xvm/home /home
# xfs_quota -x -c 'limit bsoft=500m bhard=550m tanya' /home
# xfs_quota -x -c report /home
