src/share/examples/rconfig/hammer.sh does not create a usable system
With hammer.sh the way it is, when you boot the system of the hdd, it will

new version ... added kern.bootfile to sysctl.conf ... its hardcoded

It does work usually, but sometimes it doesn't.
Not sure if working or not working is correct here. Question is if cpdup
is supposed to not cross the mount_hammer mountpoint only (which is '/'
so it should work) or is it also supposed to not cross the mount_null
mountpoints (in which case it shouldn't work)?
Failure seems kinda random, e.g. some weeks ago, I ended up with an
empty /boot when installing with hammer.sh. Re-running the script
without modification fixed things.
Sounds weird? I think so too.
