Bug#757985: kfreebsd-* release status? (was: #757985: kfreebsd: d-i hangs)

[ I'm adding -release@ to the loop. I tried to refrain from mentioning
my concerns in the Jessie Beta 1 announce, that's why I used a quite
neutral wording, but let's be honest: kfreebsd-* is looking bad right
now. ]

To expand a bit on my earlier reply: that wouldn't be the first
partman-* package being uninstallable. See the edos/dose reports
(table or graphs):

Is anyone currently working on figuring out what exactly the problem
is, and how to fix it?

FWIW the current state of d-i on kfreebsd-*, along with unfixed (not
even replied to) serious bug reports in kfreebsd headers (#750836,
#756553), and upgradability issues (kernel removal, #756464) kind of
get me worried about kfreebsd-* releasability for jessie.
