Actually, before the umount, you probably want to exit the chroot shell.
umount is important in that it forces all data to be written. If you did
a proper shutdown, the file system mounted on /mnt/sysimage would be
unmounted during the shutdown process, but my background goes back to
older Unix systems where things were less stable than they are today.
