SunOS 4/Solaris do the same.

I'd like to see the kernel attempt to explicitly report the filesystems
mounted marked dirty or clean (Pyramid OSx did this):

	FYI:  Marking the following filesystems CLEAN:
	/dev/iop00a (/), /dev/iop00g (/usr), /dev/iop01d (/export),
	/dev/iop02a (/altroot), /dev/iop02g (/opt), /dev/iop03a (/tmp),
	and the following filesystems DIRTY:
	/dev/iop12o (/usr/spool/news)

[The above is from a literal reboot of a Pyramid 98x0]
