As many people have pointed out to me, you cannot verify a mounted
filesystem. If the filesystem is unmounted (or, at least, you KNOW
that nothing is changing on it if it is mounted) then you can
verify it.

As many of you supposed, c0t0d0s0 was indeed my / filesystem and
the only way to verify the ufsdump was boot off of cdrom.

Thanks for reminding me of what I already knew... :)
