There is a patch in PR 118337 which may or may not be the one used by
FreeSBIE.  This PR is in the same holding pattern as 119041 (waiting on
the new version).

I'm CC'ing the maintainer on this so he can hopefully make sure that the
ZFS and cd9660 patches are addressed in the next version.  I'm also not
sure how a ZFS root will figure into this but it is hopefully something
the maintainer can take up with the author.
