This problem can easily be solved by mounting by label instead of device name. 
I have not checked the 8-current bootable image installation yet, but it 
appears that they are mounting /dev/da0sX instead of /dev/ufs/xxx typically. 
Maybe an idea for the release team to give a unique name or label to the 
partitions and mount according to that.
