Getting a lot closer.  I am now able to complete the system installation
without having to compile a single package.  However, when I boot I'm
thrown in a guile debugger.

  ext2fs_check_if_mount: Can't check if filesystem is mounted due to
  missing mtab file when determining whether /dev/sdb1 is mounted.
  fsck.ext4: No such device or address while trying to open /dev/sdb1
  Possibily non-existent or swap device?
  'fsck.ext4' exited with code 8 on /dev/sdb1

I'm not sure if this problem has to do with some of the oddities of this
particular machine.  It runs coreboot, and the grub menu that I get
initially isn't the grub.cfg that guix installs.  So, I drop to the grub
console and `set root=(ahci0,msdos1)` and `configfile
/boot/grub/grub.cfg` to get to the menu.

I also ran `(file-exists? "/dev/sdb1")` at the debugger prompt and the
return value was #t.

Any ideas?
