I have finally reached the point where the various /dev/md<n> devices mount
during the reboot....

Now I get a large number of error messages of the form:
  init: failed to create pty - disabling logging for job
  could not load /lib/modules/3.4.4-2-ARCH/modules.dep no such file or directory
on the console, and then the system appears to simply halt, without completing
the reboot.

What are these messages trying to tell me, and how do I fix them so that the
reboot can complete?
