To clarify, what I'm hinting at here is the case where the kernel
resides on a small boot partition /dev/wd0a and we have our root cgd
on /dev/wd0e. In this case the USB device, sd0, with the parameters
can't be accessed until after we've already booted.
But for your approach of loading the kernel from USB I agree that
bootprops would be better.
