Random data collection thoughts:

- Can you reproduce it on tiny partitions (to speed up testing)
- If you newfs, shutdown the DOMU, then copy off the data from the
DOM0 does it pass FreeBSD fsck on a native boot
- Alternatively if you newfs an image on a native FreeBSD box and copy
to the DOM0 does the DOMU fsck fail
- Potentially based on results above - does it still happen with a
reboot between the newfs and fsck
- Can you ktrace whichever of newfs or fsck to see exactly what its
writing (tiny *tiny* filesystem for the win here :)
