It's been discussed previously what the correct behaviour is when a
filesystem error is discovered. To provide some input, here's what
mount)ufs on Solaris 7 has to say about this:
This option specifies the action that
UFS should take to recover from an
internal inconsistency on a file system.
Specify action as panic, lock, or umount
. These values cause a forced system
shutdown, a file system lock to be
applied to the file system, or the file
system to be forcibly unmounted, respec-
tively. The default is panic.
Microsoft: "Where do you want to go today?"
Linux: "Where do you want to be tomorrow?"
BSD: "Are you guys coming, or what?"
