Recommended order (after reboot, not just a drop to single-user) is:
fsck -p (Not likely needed, but it's safest and, if it was not needed,
runs in under s second)
adjkertz -i (if hardware clock runs local time)
swapon -a (Just in case you need to swap, which s unlikely, but it's
best to be safe)
mount -a -t ufs (System may not be ready to mount non-ufs systems)
