See the last emails in the thread "ZFS booting without partitions", it
has a patch
which makes the -stable loader work (some changes that didn't get merged to
-stable). I think only the change from 8 to 64 is all thats needed but
I applied the
whole patch when I tested it. Also, yes LOADER_ZFS_SUPPORT causes
gptzfsboot to be compiled as well as add ZFS support to loader (and
It may not have been documented (I didn't check).
