I also wanted to add this fourth recipe, which I created
after code inspection and testing:

  newfs /dev/rwd1a
  mount_ffs /dev/wd1a /mnt
  touch /mnt/test
  tail -f /mnt/test &
  echo test >> /mnt/test
  mount_ffs -o update,ro /dev/wd1a /mnt

This is important because just having the file open
for read is enough to keep the file from being flushed.
