Maybe test building and/or booting without "options MODULAR"?  It
sounds as though this change always affects booting....

Yes, it still works without "options MODULAR" (as long as the root filesystem is linked into the kernel, of course!). It boots fine with either 'config root on ... type ?' or 'config root on ... type ffs'.

I'd really appreciate it if someone with other architectures can try these patches, as well as someone trying to boot from NFS or MFS.

BTW, a NetBSD-i386 5.99.03 with these patches boots just fine into sysinst on my amd64 hardware.
