mrg says that the problem is that /kern/rootdev and /kern/rrootdev
don't work unless the real root device vnodes from /dev are in the
vnode cache, and thus ls -l in /dev will cause /kern to reappear.

This worked just now for me on a 5.99.7 box but not on a 4.99.72 box,
so it may not be the only problem but it's probably at least part of
the problem.
