Either the new statfs, or something in a recent change in -CURRENT
(since last week), has broken the nvidia driver.   
I've been using it now for
over half a year with no problems at all.  I installed the new kernel
and world, rebuilt x11/nvidia-driver and X11 hung before it had even
switched to graphical mode.   After a minute the system rebooted, and
unfortunately a couple of lost+found directories were populated 
by fsck - I must remember to turn off the ata write cache next time!   
I've now rebuilt *all* of the ports in the hope that it
would solve it, but it still crashes.
