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.)
