To be eligible for background cleaning it must have been running
with soft updates, not have been marked as needing a foreground
check, and be mounted and writable when the background check is
to be done.  If these conditions are met, then fsck_ffs exits
with a zero exit status.  Otherwise it exits with a non-zero exit
status.  If the file system is clean, it will exit with a non-
zero exit status so that the clean status of the file system can
be verified and reported during the foreground checks.
