Sorry -- I figured it would be understood that the / partition is not
mounted read-only in this case.

So . . . basically I'm screwed for FreeBSD with that machine.  Right?

I'm not sure what you're saying here.  Config includes something about a
USB module -- which appears to be the module it wants to use -- but this
is an integrated tablet that, as far as I know, does not actually use USB
for anything.  Seems a little odd to me that this whole thing would fail
just because it doesn't have USB support when I'm not plugging anything
in to a USB port.

Do ThinkPad X-series tablets use USB?
