I guess you can make the virtual disk larger - what you then need is
code to expand the filesystem to fill the unused space.  Many years ago
I think someone did this for UFS.  Dunno whether it is possible for the
bsd filesystem.

In principle you just have to initialise a load of extra cylinder groups
then hack the header...
