That made ada1p6.journal go way, and gp0home and gp0home.journal
reappear. That doesn't directly fix the problem at boot time, but I
suspect it means that I should have created gp0home.journal with the

   -h   Hardcode provider names in metadata.

It's in several geom man pages, but I've never understood the point
of it until now, I've always run gjournal on geli where there's no

Unfortunately gjournal stop makes it switch to the other device name,
so it not possible to clear. I'm going to start again.
