After trial and error, "auto_reg=none" also worked for me in my first
attempt this past weekend to kick off a Jumpstart using a modified Sol10 u8
sysidcfg file.

I found it very curious that the new documentation appears to allude to the
"auto_reg" variable as a means to auto-*accept* the phone-home setting, but
didn't seem to clearly state anywhere what value is used to auto-disable
it... Sigh. :-/
