Hi. How do I attach a CD-ROM device (in this case an ISO file) to a VM without bhyve booting into it?

bhyve -c 1 -m 512M -w -H \
        -s 0,hostbridge \
        -s 3,ahci-cd,/media/Debian-11.1.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso \
        -s 4,virtio-blk,/dev/zvol/zroot/bhyve_vms/debianvm \
        -s 29,fbuf,tcp=,w=800,h=600,wait \
        -s 31,lpc \
        -l com1,stdio \
        -l bootrom,/usr/local/share/uefi-firmware/BHYVE_UEFI.fd debianvm

/dev/zvol/zroot/bhyve_vms/debianvm already contains the installed OS, so now I want to boot into it while still having access to the packages on the ISO (to selectively install packages I want).
