I've always assumed that /netbsd is loaded entirely into memory at
boot, and is thereafter just laying there, waiting for the next reboot.
But when I boot from a special boot device, and "sysctl init.root" to
wd0a, and /netbsd is missing from wd0a, I get warnings. It seems to boot
anyway; but is the presence of /netbsd important on a root partition,
even if it isn't actually used for boot?
(Obviously, I've always intended to keep a /netbsd there, but I just
happened to forget to copy it there).
