dmesg from uefi boot to zfs. some notes:

zroot is on its own drive, on a zfsosx-created partition (so OSX doesn't get
surly with the partition types) and the original FreeBSD-created zpool
snapshotted and recursive send/received.

the system boots via refind http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/ locating the EFI
FAT partition on the other drive. The only change to the Apple EFI partition is
to copy in ./EFI/freebsd/boot1.efi

booting requires 3 changes:

    set kern.vty="vt"
    load zfs
    set vfs.root.mountfrom="zfs:zroot/ROOT/default"

Setting these in loader.conf (either in ./EFI/freebsd/ or on zfs) has no

BTW I'd love to know how to set `mode 2` in loader.conf as well instead of the
small default quadrant in the middle of the EFI console.
