Rooting on non-boot device GPT partition
On older Pi systems, rooting on any other device & partition was as simple
as editing cmdline.txt and setting root= to whatever we wanted, be it
sd0a, dk0, whatever.
I see the default entry there now refers to the GPT partition on the image
(netbsd-root), but changing that doesn't do anything.
Also, we can't compile a kernel with NAME or with dk0.
I COULD make a hybrid MBR / GPT with root on the MBR which is in the first
two terabytes of the disk, but that seems kludgy.
What's the proper way these days to root off of a GPT partition on a USB
adapter on a Pi 4? Or any other system?
