Yes, -showsuid also implies -nowrite.
In general, you can always use -nowrite to run the salvager in a read-only
mode where it will only tell you what it would do, rather than actually
doing anything. This eliminates any need to shut down the fileserver;
however, you only get that benefit if you run the salvager by hand - the
'bos salvage' command only knows how to handle a limited number of salvager
Remember that if you run the salvager by hand and do not use one of
-nowrite, -showmounts, or -showsuid, you must shut down the fileserver
first. Otherwise you risk damaging volumes.
