I'm merging my ext2-partition with my /usr by shrinking ext2 and doing 
growfs on the free space. I did it with soft updates enabled and it 
seemed to work until I tried to use /usr which resulted in kernel panic 
(ffs_valloc: dup alloc). After plenty of 'fcsk -y' I got it fixed while 
losing few random files. :( The errors were mostly related to soft updates.

Should soft updates be disabled before using growfs?
