PR/52828: Mark Johnston: makefs UFS2 lazy inode initialization is buggy
makefs(8) emulates UFS2 in performing lazy initialization of inode

initializes one inode block at a time, which may be insufficient.

If so, a later initialization may clobber an inode, resulting in
an inconsistent filesystem.

I committed a minimal fix for the problem to FreeBSD:
