Unfortunately this might not work from within the installer because
Linux no longer builds a ufs kernel module for d-i. (Support for ufs
was being dropped). It may only pick up OpenBSD on the next run of
update-grub2 after booting the installed system (where ufs.ko seems to
be still available).
I think this could also be an inconvenience for systems where GNU/Linux
is installed alongside GNU/kFreeBSD. Maybe there is some argument to
keep providing a ufs udeb, even if partman doesn't allow to create new
ufs partitions or install to existing ones.
