This is my understanding, not by reading kernel source.

When the system booted in single user mode, the root filesystem mounted
as read-only. So after fsck(8), we could simply reboot.
When the system went into single user mode from multi user mode, the
root filesystem mounted as read-write. So after unmounting all file
systems (after stop accounting), re-mount the root file system
# mount -u -o ro /
And after fsck(8), we could simply reboot.
But when I enabled soft dependency in the root filesystem, I need to the
1. Go into single user mode.
2. Remount the root filesystem read-only.
3. Enable soft dependency with tunefs(8).
4. Restart the system with reboot(8) using "-n" and "-q" option.
It might not need to both "-n" and "-q" option.
Since these are my experience, something might be wrong.
