I should clarify. It has nothing to do with ext3 -> ext4 migration,
unless the fstab is sensitive to it. The disk is ext3, and so the kernel
was detecting the drive as ext3 -- and when that happened, I got EXT-3
journal recovery on every reboot. So on the thought that maybe the fstab
was sensitive to that (and becasue I really would like the ext4 driver)
I added rootfstype=ext4 to my bootup options. It didn't fix the problem,
it just changed it from EXT-3 journal recovery to EXT-4 journal
OK. Poking around a bit more, innserv seems to be the
culprit. /etc/init.d/umountroot isn't getting run on shutdown, because
both /etc/init.d/halt and /etc/init.d/umountroot are getting the same
priority to start in runlevels 0 and 6 (i.e. S01halt, and
S01umountroot), so you can guess which one gets run first.
