 > From what I can tell $bfsShell sets imageOffsetFlags in
 build/scripts/build_haiku_image:

 You're on the wrong track: this functionality is for offsets within images
 (hence the name). For example VMDK files have a 64K offset at the start
 before the actual partition begins. I've already pointed out the bug in
 comment:5, as well as how to solve it.
