Right, cpu_reboot(9) only tears down filesystems and (pseudo-)devices.
Every non-filesystem entity that we want to tear down either already is,
or can be made into a device.

md, raid, and vnd are pseudo-devices.  Neither ccd, cgd, nor dm is a
pseudo-device, yet.  I've been converting cgd into a pseudo-device,
using vnd as a guide, but I don't use cgd myself, so I would like to
hand the conversion off to somebody else.  Interested?
