vnconfig'ing vnd0 and telling sysinst to install to that (empty) disk
image used to work so far. It seems on a 4.0_BETA kernel with -current
sysinst, this doesn't work any more.
I've tracked things down to the pwrite() call in sysinst's write_mbr()
failing with sector=0, but I don't know how to interpret this, esp. as
this used to work. Is writing to the start of a vnd device prohibited now?
FWIW, I've tried running 'disklabel -W vnd0' but that didn't make any
Is there something I'm missing?
