 This problem happens when some garbage parameter is read by mountfs and
 subsequent calculations for file system access go wrong.  The easiest
 way, apart from an educated guess, is to single step the mountfs and/or
 inspect the contents of pmp at the end.
 It's also another good reminder that one should not mount file systems
 from an untrusted source with an in-kernel driver for security reasons.
