I've noticed this with spec_fsync at shutdown time.  It happens if you
fasthalt, but not if you shutdown -h now.

Yeah, I know - now that we have clean bits, fasthalt has gone away.  But old
habits die hard.

In any case, I think the problem DOES stop filesystems "behind" specfs
in the mount list from syncing, which is a bad thing.
