	When unmounting the filesystems at the end of installing a new current
	machine paniced with:

	panic: ffs_unmount: flush left dirty bufs 0xcaffa8c0
	Stopped in pid 4590 (umount)

	This has happened on 2 out of 2 installs with the new floppy set.

	From yesterdays -current sources do a "make release" and then use
	the floppy images to install on a new machine. Install should work
	smoothly until the unmount of the filesystems at the end (just prior
	to going back to the main install menu), at which point panic.
