                OS: Any

# Objective

Boot to FreeBSD and see the console during boot on UEFI-only Apple iMac.

# Expected Result

beautiful lines of console bliss scroll merrily past until the joyous login
prompt appears; all celebrate.

# Actual Result

loader.efi gets us to:

Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt.
Booting [/boot/kernel/kernel]...
Start @ 0xffffffff802d89c0 ...

And then no further activity (flickering, output, anything) is seen.

However the system successfully boots and dmesg is attached. The method of
installation was slightly unconventional, using an existing OpenZFS-on-OSX
zpool and manually setting up zfs mountpoints before running the normal
CD-based installation, using
http://ftp.at.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/amd64/10.1-PRERELEASE/ from

# Configs:

## EFI FAT partition

- refind 0.8.3
- /EFI/FREEBSD/loader.efi copied from FreeBSD /boot/loader.efi
- /EFI/boot copied from FreeBSD /boot (includes kernel modules etc)
- loader.conf as follows:


at the console, 
OK show

if that's of use.

Setting `kern.vty="vt"` or not makes no difference.
