Re: Edit /boot/loader.conf
I edited /etc/grub.d/10_kfreebsd, and added the line to the end of the kfreebsd_entry() section after the "set kFreeBSD.vfs.root.mountfrom..." lines. I then ran update-grub, and everything works now. Seems that /etc/grub.d/40_custom is for custom menu entries.

I'm not sure. Try editting grub.cfg by hand and moving this sentence
to the beginning. Maybe the order matters.
