When I do a 'shutdown -r now' on my P90 PCI
with two scsi-disks and an MFS mounted /tmp,
it fails to get past the message "Syncing disks"
Also it seems that it is failing to sync the
disks too, since my init was corrupted this time
though usually pressing "Reset-Button" causes no trouble.

I remember that some time ago people had recognised that
mounting mfs could cause this. Was it ever solved or do
I have to stop using MFS (which would a terrible nuisance.)

fstab: (Ignore the missing sd1a, it's a spare root-partition.)
