Booting an USB install image, like

with boot -a (because I have a broke raid config that I want to recover)
failed. After forcing root to sd0a init dies with "no /dev/console".

However, the filesystem has a perfectly fine /dev/console:

# ll /mnt/dev/console 
crw-------  1 root  wheel  0, 0 Jul 11 19:01 /mnt/dev/console
