The main portion of the patch in this bug report was upstreamed to FreeBSD
stable/12 (bug #209821).

The original version of the patch that is in this bug report (bug #256722) also
adds missing return value checks and other checks that might help detect some
potential problems. Those were not upstreamed.

FreeBSD stable/13 and stable/14 don't have this patch, but it shouldn't be
necessary unless the user (or the auto-selection algorithm) selects to copy the
kernel to the staging area. By default, the kernel in stable/13 and stable/14
can be started from an arbitrary memory address and copying isn't necessary.
