Once again, it has nothing at all to do with UFS. Clearly you didn't
search the mailing list archives like I said you should. I removed the
support from sysinstall because it was *broken* due to changes with
geom. It is not a sysinstall thing, it's a "oh look, sysinstall lets
you do something that doesn't work anymore" thing. You'd think if the
person that made these changes to sysinstall was commenting on the
issue, that should clear up any uncertainty. But you can go ahead
believing whatever makes you happy.
