Hmm, I guess so. :-P

Anyway, you might try


Although I'm not sure the linker will allow you to link such a huge
object into the kernel...

I've used this patch on my netbooted FreeBSD 4.x servers, but never
larger tham 10 MB.

Another idea is to use NFS just to use the loader to 'load -t mfs_root'
the mfsroot image. After that, you wouldn't depend on NFS anymore.
