I've tried to boot with -a but hung at the prompt at the end.
I think I could try dev and see if that results in anything positive, had no
luck with dev in the past, and there is still the tyranny of /etc/fstab.
I checked /etc/fstab on OpenBSD 5.4 live USB, from liveusb.sourceforge.net, and
noticed a long label, so maybe that enables this live USB to find its root and
swap. I believe this or similar feature in NetBSD begins in current (releng-7).
