Well after a bit more experimentation I made some progress. It turns
out that embedding an mfsroot using the write_mfs_in_kernel does
actually work: so long as the mfsroot is less than 1385K. Sadly that's
not quite enough to get the 2.4MB standard 5.3 install mfsroot going
though. Anyway, at least I've seen my FreeBSD guest boot in to
sysinstall for the first time :)
