pluggin fibre moves boot disk from da0 to da1 = cannot mountroot

I think I asked this before, but cannot
find the answer in the archives.
This server has a single scsi disk, da0.
I can boot fine.

I then plug in a fibre card and attach
a fibre disk, which I want to be da1,
so that I can boot as normal.

However, now the boot stops at mountroot>
because apparently fibre is identified as da0
and the scsi disk as da1, and I cannot
boot from da0 anymore.

What is the solution to this?
Is there some device.hint option to say
that fibre must be after the scsi disk?
Or maybe some fibre delay, long enough
to ensure it's found only after root
has been mounted?
