--- Comment #1 from Graham Perrin <grahamperrin@freebsd.org> ---
zfs_load is mentioned obscurely under
in 'Remote Installation of the FreeBSD Operating System Without a Remote
Console', however: 

* it's nowhere in the FreeBSD Handbook.

We should document that zfs_load: 

* is automatically enabled (set to "YES") if ZFS is chosen when installing

* can be manually enabled for atypical use cases, such as the one described in 
  comment 0

* must be "NO" when using the port of OpenZFS, i.e. sysutils/openzfs-kmod.

Also – maybe a question for fs@ – should zfs_load be mentioned in
