Using a regular goaway (i.e. `settrans -g node') asks the filesystem to
send an fsys_goaway to the child.  Appling the force options adds
FSYS_GOAWAY_FORCE to the flags passed to the child.  Normally, this
option is interpreted as shutdown even if there are users.  It is up to
the child to repect these.  Disconnect tells the filesystem to not tell
the child to go away, but rather to just deallocate the child's control
