Booting a sub-hurd as a non-root user doesn't work, but is supposed to.

#v+
$ boot -D subhurd subhurd/boot/script.boot subhurd.ext2fs
boot: /hurd/ext2fs.static: mach_port_insert_right: (os/kern) invalid value
mach error
#v-

(The terminal is in a messed state afterwards and has to be reset by e.g. `reset'.)

Booting with `sudo boot ...' works.

Roland: ``I vaguely recall there being some strange complexities in doing it, like proc not having the host-priv port. If you investigate the failure, we'll remember what the issues are.''
