Yes, I know that the message means that one should run 'ps axl'.

The system is well beyond any hope of interactive commands at the
console.  It appears right after init(8) stops syslogd and before
the 'stopping vnlru ... done.' message.

I was hoping that I could put the command in /etc/shutdown.rc, but
reading that script did not provide the insight needed to automatically
run the command.

It is somewhat surprising that init(8) does not give the PID(s) of
the offending process(es).
