	loader.conf doesn't seem to recognize hint.apic.0.disabled="YES", although it does honor hint.apic.0.disabled=1

	Note: I do not have this problem with boot_verbose -- boot_verbose="YES" works as expected.
	Add hint.apic.0.disabled="YES" to loader.conf and reboot. Observe that APIC is not disabled.
	Add hint.apic.0.disabled="1" to loader.conf and reboot. APIC *is* disabled.

	Change the parsing for hint.apic.0.disabled or loader.conf in general; if this can't be fixed, then at least document the valid values for truth in loader.conf(5).
