With i386 SMP NetBSD kernel, fsck stoped working correctly.
The boot time message shows following messages.  I attached
a part of the message.  The problem of this message is that
it shows /dev/rwd0e strange order and wrong.  The wd0e
partition was clean, but fsck said not clean.  It should
appear between wd0a and wd0f lines, but appeared after DHCP

I did fsck by hand after this boot, but fsck said it's clean.
I rebooted machine, this time the order of messages are
still strange, but there was no wrong information.

swapctl: adding /dev/wd0b as swap device at priority 0
Automatic boot in progress: starting file system checks.
/dev/rwd0a: file system is clean; not checking
/dev/rwd0f: file system is clean; not checking
Setting tty flags.
Starting dhclient.
