Producing a Linux d-i image which worked in a domU was reasonably easy
(assuming a suitable kernel flavour exists in the archive), if you are
interested in doing the same for kFreeBSD I'd be more than happy to give
some guidance/pointers etc.
Presumably, given the necessary host hardware support, you could also
have installed as an HVM guest rather than QEMU and subsequently
switched to PV kFreeBSD. I'm not sure if FreeBSD has PV in HVM driver
support or not, I know some of the *BSDs do.
The superfluous is very necessary.
