Surely, the patch has code independent of netbooting, but I mean that it is not
enough to boot OpenBSD from a disk.

If you know more or less about the boot process of OpenBSD, take a look at the
function "openbsd_boot" in the patch. It is obvious that it doesn't support
booting from a disk, as bootdev is just ignored.
