I updated from 7.1RC to CURRENT on a GPT/MBR macbook with (EFI, HFS+,
FreeBSD (ad5p3 / ad5s3)) and met this problem:

GEOM: ad5p3: geometry does not match label (255h,63s != 16h,63s)
Trying to mount root from: ufs:/dev/ad5s3a

from here I have a prompt to manually mount slice, but I can't do
anything except have the following peace of information:

List of GEOM managed disk devices:
msdosfs/EFI ad5p3 ad5p2 ad5p1 ad5 acd0

is this the <<
Known "problem", happens after geom_{bsd,mbr} have been
replaced with geom_part_{bsd,mbr} in /sys/$ARCH/conf/DEFAULTS
>> ?

What can I do ?


PS: This is not specific to CURRENT, the rEFIt menu is very long to
appear at boot time. I don't know where to solve this. Rui ?
