/boot/defaults/loader.conf had geom_*_load="NO" switches specified for most geom systems. gjournal is missing from that list. I have provided a patch to add it.

I also suggest that these switches be documented directly in their respective man pages. I had a lot of trouble finding information on this requirement since it is not mentioned there.
