I have a problem which is possibly related to this one. My FreeBSD7-amd64
system fails to boot, because the network device nfe0 cannot be
configured by dhclient. Dhclient refuses to work because / is not
yet writeable. So I have to mount_-u_-o_r_/ manually, start
dhclient_nfe0 again, and quit single-user mode to get the
system booted.
