What exactly do I have to do to get background fsck?

My Thinkpad got instable, and I haven't figured out yet whether it's
hardware, FreeBSD's RELENG_6 kernel or X11/DRI.  Anyway...

I always go through a foreground fsck, no matter whether the thing
paniced or had a powercycle, or how long it has been up.  I have
softupdates activated but I must be missing something.

I badly need background fsck.  We are talking a 1.3 GHz, a 5400 rpm
P-ATA notebook harddrive with a 150 GB filesystem here :-/
