It is not easy to test. Most of the time you will be fine, and just reuse
low numbered inodes for /netbsd and /netbsd.old (slightly depending on your
exact update methoed). But sometime you might end up with a new /netbsd with
a high inode number and then the bootloader will fail to load it.
I am not sure there actually are systems with hardware trouble accessing
big filesystems past boot.
