With it set to 1, it boots, but there are a few messages after it says 
recovery is optional. With it set to 2, it still boots. Either way, the 
network interfaces are hosed. When running "netif start", it says "ifconfig: 
interface *** does not exist", where the three stars are spade, heart, spade. 
dmesg, whose beginning is cut off, shows that that's ^F^C^F. Various other 
interfaces whose names are control characters are brought up, none with an IP 
address, but with lladdr 0, 0.0, 0.0.0,,, and 
I set skip_redo to 1, trying to see the errors, and they aren't there. I 
guess unmounting the filesystem fixed the errors.

I booted the old kernel, after doing all this, and succeeded. ifconfig looks 
normal, except that em0's IPv6 address is missing. I am therefore renaming 
the previous kernel to kernel, and will keep this one as kernel.skip_redo.  I 
recommend keeping the patch in case this comes up again.
