Please forgive me for probably a very stupid question. But why is
FreeBSD so sensitive to filesystem errors that it ends up with panics
like 'freeing free block' or 'ffs_valloc: dup alloc'? I just can't get
it. Failed to allocate vnode? Go allocate another one! Freeing free
block? Leave it free then! I understand these situations should never
happen, but the hell why is it required to panic and kill everything
that would be working happily even if something very disasterous happen
to /backup partition, in example?
Would be very appreciated if someone could explain that... thanks.
