When trying to install one decides to interrupt during a call to bsdlabel/newfs, but not before the media is downloaded, the installation will newfs once (successfully), then fail the second time.

This is characteristic of a user deciding to use a particular labeling configuration, then changing their mind during install.

This can be reproduced as follows:

1. Walk through steps to do a normal sysinstall. Make sure to setup multiple slices.
2. Cancel install when after first newfs is complete (CTRL-C suffices).
3. Change the labeling scheme.
4. Attempt to commit install again.

The `emergency' console will note something of the flavor that the newfs operation failed, with something of the form `Operation not permitted' (ENOPERM).
