Have you verified this is a problem? On my test box that has:
defaults/loader.conf:module_path="/boot/modules" # Set the module search path
and was booted:
/boot/kernel/accf_http.ko text=0xb84 data=0x150+0x4 syms=[0x4+0x310+0x4+0x334]
Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt.
(i.e. normal boot process w/ no interaction)
My sysctl returns:
-bash-2.05b$ sysctl kern.module_path
Please include complete information of the breakage that this change
is suppose to cause.
