init 6 is a reboot

beadm is just shell so you can download it and it will run i theory. It
might use a few switches and flags that aren't available though so your
mileage may vary.

What you can do though is snap and clone your existing rootfs and present
it in a format where it will work for 9 when you can use it. eg

zroot/ROOT/9

If you have cloning issues and rsync of the base os to the new mountpoint
should work fine as well, but use the -H flag as there are a few hard links
in the os. This can be a bit more messy though depending on your setup.
