For automated caches it is probably more suitable to newfs a cache disk
if a normal fsck fails. It is hard to tell what errors that may occur
or how long time a fsck -y takes.

* newfs is always quicker than fsck on a dirty filesystem.
* newfs leaves the filesystem in a well known state (empty).
* cache data is non-critical.
