Fair enough. I forgot I'm passing -r /var/vkernel/rootimg.01 to
vkernel everytime I'm starting it :-).

According to init_disk() in src/sys/platform/vkernel/platform/init.c,
the root virtual disk is associated with vkd0s0a.  So I reckon my
patch makes sense.

Anybody knows what /etc/fstab is used for in the vkernel env?
