Interesting. The way I'm trying to boot is well described in
Comment 20. It is sad that nothing has changed since July 2018. Does it
mean nobody really cares?

Speaking of Comment 22. 

I've never thought I will have to build a kernel with an MFS image
within (outside of NanoBSD). How are you going to boot this kernel from
iPXE? Put it on an ISO image and sanboot the ISO?

Is it not possible to fetch a GENERIC kernel by loader.efi, then fetch
an MFSROOT image as a separate file? This is the way I did the job
during the pxelinux (old BIOS based netboot) times.
