I have a working 5.0 install on OSX/Parallels, but when I upgrade it to
current, the kernel stops finding a working filesystem to mount.

What have I forgotten? I unpacked stand/ to get the modules hierarchy,
and I used a pax/tar --unlink type sequence single-user to get the
binary/lib state  unpacked. (this always used to work fine)

A 5.0 .iso image sees the filesystem fine.

You need a new /boot.

mount /dev/wd0a /mnt
cp /mnt/usr/mdec/boot /mnt/boot
installboot -v /dev/rwd0a /mnt/usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv1

that did the trick. installboot on its own, without the cp of the new / boot didn't work.

thanks for the cluebat Quentin!
