with a 1.4M kernel and userland, using lfs freezes my
NetBSD/amiga machine:

I can newfs_lfs and mount_lfs the partition, write files
to it, read the files -- all without problems.

But if the partition is idle a few minutes (wrt to access
by processes other than lfs_cleanerd), the whole system
freezes. I cannot even enter the debugger.

These are the last words of lfs_cleanerd:

lfs_cleanerd[301]: Cleaner Running  at Sat Nov 20 22:34:21 1999
 (system load 0.2, 40 of 75 segments available)
lfs_cleanerd[301]: Cleaning segment 20 (of 1 choices)
lfs_cleanerd[301]: cleaning segment 20: contains 539520 bytes

Is there a way to make the cleanerd more verbose besides
the -d option?
