Well, there are different options here:
1. is there a way to pass the root from ofwboot to netbsd?
2. since netbsd knows it boots normally from raid, you can put a
"root on raidx" statement in your kernel.
3. you can compile the kernel with RAIDCTL_FORCE_ROOT
4. we can add an option to mark the raid as force root.
