Well, there was this fsync that was heavily chewing up CPU time in
kernel space when I was profiling a server. That fsync happens to flush
the log to disk, I'll put it back in the next release.

Volume not online? Something must have gone wrong during salvaging,
a terminally ill volume is forced offline when the salvager cannot
be sure the state is valid.

Sure, just change /vice/db/ROOTVOLUME to have the name of one of the
replicated volumes, or create a new replicated rootvolume. Clients that
have some files from this volume in their cache will be complaining a bit
louder until they've managed to "uncache" those objects.
