The system probably won't be able to shutdown cleanly, because if kill -9 doesn't
work then 'reboot' won't be able to kill the processes.   I've had this happen
with nfs-mounted drives when the network dies - FreeBSD just sits there forever
trying to read the file, and the system refuses to shutdown.
