Well, possible on every port that has its own bootblocks.  (Which
currently is all the ports, isn't it?)

However, that name may not be useful.  It may be on a filesystem the
kernel doesn't grok, it may be on a floppy that's not even in the drive
any longer...doesn't some port (Mac? Amiga?) load the kernel from a
native filesystem file instead of from a UFS/NFS/etc filesystem file?
