I was testing this on real hardware which needs non-free firmware
(following the procedure outlined in #642468). Hence I prepared and
compiled a pristine kernel image containing my network card driver
(among other non-free stuff).
However, I tested the issue with the package straight out of
experimental and can confirm the same behavior.

I did and I couldn't reproduce it on a virtual machine I prepared for
testing. Hence I did further triaging and it turned out to be more
likely a problem between grub and libgeom1, not kfreebsd-9 and libgeom1.
I am not sure what caused the problem, but upgrading grub from 1.99-6 to
1.99-12 solved the problem. My wild guess is, that this may be a
duplicate of #630197 fixed in -8. Hence, the bug is, if anything, a
missing "Breaks" relation.
Sorry for the noise.
with kind regards,
