Thanks very much.  I had the impression is was fail-to-attach and hence
fail-to-boot rather than data loss, but I didn't want to go through
recovering from that unnecesssarily.

And a hat tip to releng@; it's really impressive that this is the first
time in probably 6 years when I was not comfortable to just "update
along stable branch and reboot, no worries", and even this is very minor
and apparently an odd case.  I'll go read the diff when I have a chance.

(Thanks also to people who said it worked on 5.1_RELEASE.   I realized
that and was worried about the 5.1_STABLE issue riz@ points out.)
