Add some info about the root of the problem from Kirk McKusick:
: Executive summary: you need to run `fsck -f -p' whenever you switch
: to or from a 4.X (stable) and a 5.X (current) kernel. The reason
: is that the UFS1 superblock summary information is maintained in
: different parts of the superblock on these two systems. Neither
: system maintains the summary information used by the other. There
: is no risk of trashing your filesystem if you fail to run the fsck,
: but the information reported by `df' will be wrong until you run
: the fsck.
