There isn't enough space in the bootxx heap for the required number of 64k
buffers needed by the standalone FFS code.
The 'raid1' is a red herring.
Fixing this requires a re-write of the standalone ufs filesystem code
to do all its block calculations is 'sectors' - unfortunately the
#defines currently used aren't designed to let this happen.
Maybe a 64k buffer can be found somewhere - but that code is somwtimes
running in 16bit mode with CS=DS=SS=ES=0.
