OK. That means that the disklabel checks are failing for type 'vinum'. I'll
take a look at this.

What you should be doing is running fsck with a type, ie

fsck -t ufs /dev/vinum/raid5

I'll try fix the autodetect for vinum partition types (if its possible,
I seem to remember there being a vinum type in the header files).
Its weird though, I would have thought a vinum device would be type
FSTYPE (eg BSD4.3) rather than VINUM, which I'd associate with
the underlying devices ..
