 Hrm... it is odd, because bootxx_ffsv1 and bootxx_ffsv2 are almost
 identical. I would have guessed that the problem is actually somewhere
 very early in kernel initialization... except that if you can boot the
 same kernel image with bootxx_ffsv1, it can't be.
 Is the usb stick from the same build? And do you still have the
 objects from that build lying around?
 (In general bootxx_ffsv1 won't work on an ffsv2, either, so I'm sort
 of surprised the usb stick can read the volume...)
 (of course, the problem could be: the volume isn't actually ffsv2, and
 in that case maybe that's why bootxx_ffsv2 can't read it... though
 you'd expect errors rather than wedging.)
