If my explanation is wrong, please provide a correct one, as many
people want to understand why you're making a mess. You will never be
able to convince them (or me) that this mess should be accepted if you
don't/can't explain it; nor is there any chance that someone will be
able to suggest a less messy alternative.
While you're at it, as far as I can remember you never explained why
filesystem-level access to a rump kernel should be via dd instead of
via e.g. nfs or 9p, either.
