which was way before ZFS root, and way before ZFS being the defacto
standard file system in OSOL. Hence, I'd rather suggest taking this
particular part out of the discussion for now, which is of course, the most

It is always possible to agglutinate multiple separate problems
into a single complex interdependent solution.
In most cases this is a bad idea.
