That's very nice to know.

(Is the last module supposed to end with _mbr, instead of only _mb?)

I tried to read a little bit more regarding modules on freebsd and what
to do at the "mountroot" prompt.

It seems that we are not in a boot monitor anymore (well, if we are
running constrained in a kernel, that would be too much to ask, of
course), but it adds some complications, since it may be too late to
load modules.

I loaded with the kfreebsd_module_elf directive of grub2, but I still
get the mountroot prompt and an empty list of GEOM managed devices.  :-(

Just to remeber, I can boot with 7.2-1-686 without any problems.
