Isn't fsck's "reboot on hot root" sufficient?  The only problem I can see 
with it is possibly inconsistent directories, if someone is reading 
directories while roll-forward is running.  This would be a bad problem if 
it occurred, but I don't think it occurs given the way our rc works?

Alternatively, yes, fixing the in-kernel roll-forward would not be an 
insurmountable task.

Take care,
