I must be completely clueless, because I don't understand how this
addresses what I reported.  I disabled softdeps, verified that they
were disabled, and when I remounted the filesystem rw, softdeps were
silently and magically reenabled.  You're correct that I didn't
specify any options, but my fstab entry doesn't say anything about
softdeps on the root filesystem:
/dev/wd0a / ffs rw 1 1
