FYI, see also PR port-i386/39998 and x86_autoconf.c:

>>                      /*
>>                       * XXX
>>                       * There is no proper way to detect which unit is
>>                       * recognized as a bootable CD-ROM drive by the BIOS.
>>                       * Assume the first unit is the one.
>>                       */

I.e. currently only root on cd0a works on x86 GENERIC anyway.
