Robert, when going to the trouble to deprecate interfaces, on the Darwin
platform I recently removed mac_create_root_mount and the corresponding
policy entry point.  There were no policies that required it and the
mac_create_mount is sufficient.  You may wish to do the same on FreeBSD.

It was there for historical reasons; it was used during the development
of some policies that wished to load policy data when the root
filesystem was avilable.  There are much better ways to pre-load the
data now.
