I have most of my fs's mounted read-only (including things like / and
/usr/ports and such) which I'm often mount -u'ing to r/w and back.  I
see a similar error often ("kernel: /: update error: blocks 20 files
1" is the most recent I see in messages)if I don't take special care
to sync sync sync and/or wait a while after using it before mount
-u'ing it.  It's been happening for a while, back to even before mount
-u started blowing up with EFAULT.
