Just to clarify:
If you mount file system read-write using its disk/slice/paritition name,
not its label.
Bascially, /dev/ufs/<label> is created on top of /dev/<partition>, so when
you open /dev/<partition> to write, GEOM sends an event that metadata may
be changed (the spoil event) and I should remove all providers created by
using those metadata. And this is what I do.
