I have finally been able to test it, and it works. Thanks a lot.
Would it be possible to get it in the grub-pc package?
Then I think we should start to think of transitioning from
kfreebsd-loader to grub. What is needed for that? I think the first
would be to have the postinst of kfreebsd-image-* look at
/etc/kernel-img.conf and implement:
Then people can start to using grub instead of kfreebsd-loader on a
voluntary basis. If everything goes well, we can then think about
defaulting to grub instead of kfreebsd-loader on already existing
installations (d-i for GNU/kFreeBSD uses grub by default).
