My firmware is set to boot from dka0 by default, and this works
fine. However, I've noticed that if I boot of my emergency root on
dka100 and then use NetBSD `reboot' rather than NetBSD `halt' and
firmware `boot', the reboot happens from dka100 rather than dka0.
Should this really be happening? I personally would find it more
convenient to use the firmware defaults for the reboot command.
