--- Comment #5 from lidl at pix.net ---
I just tried to get this to work today.  Here are my notes.

I prepared a fresh image this morning (Last Changed Rev: 275104),
and attempted to boot it on VirtualBox 4.3.20 r96996 (on a Mac),
with the VirtualBox extensions installed.

It does work, if you give enough memory to the client VM.

With 3072MB of memory for the virtualbox instance, FreeBSD panics before
the kernel's autoconfiguration takes place.

With 3073MB..3090MB of memory, the FreeBSD boot hangs right after
it prints out the "EFI framebuffer information:" table, but before any
of the autoconfiguration happens.

With 3091MB (or more) of memory, the FreeBSD boot completes successfully.
