The image size is now smaller. It was increased to 3G and now decreased to 2?

12 ↗(On Diff #45195)

I personally do not like the idea of reducing the size of these. They were increased for a reason; a number of boards failed to build because the backing md(4) device was out of space, which is why they were increased (and they were increased across the board to keep everything the same size for simplicity).

As of today the image have still ~200MB iirc when they are 2G.
But I can leave the 3G if you prefer and just deal with the fat partition.
I just find it a waste of time when dding the image. (Also this is for FreeBSD HEAD with all the debug stuff)
