install/51503: 7.0.1/amd64 USB install image root mount fails when sd present

I recently installed NetBSD 7.0.1/amd64 on a HP DL360 G7 server.
Since the server lacks an optical drive, I tried a USB install as
When the kernel booted from the USB stick, the following messages
appeared on the console:
boot device: sd1
root on sd1a dumps on sd1b
root file system type: ffs
mount_ffs: /dev/sd0a on /: specified device does not match mounted device
cp: /etc/gettytab: Read-only file system
Then, instead of sysinst starting automatically, I got a login prompt.
When I logged in as root and ran sysinst manually, it reported errors
at the point when it tried to write the network configuration to disk.
Running dmesg showed a logical volume of the server's RAID controller
as sd0, and the USB stick as sd1.
I was ultimately able to work around the problem and complete the
installation, but I'm reporting it so that it can be fixed for the
benefit of future NetBSD users.
