            Bug ID: 200448
           Summary: GELI Passphrase prompt in boot loader does not work as
                    expected in 10.1-STABLE
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.1-STABLE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: cmangin at arobas.net

As of r281843 it is possible to activate a bootloader prompt for the GELI
passphrase in 10.1-STABLE by setting geom_eli_passphrase_prompt="YES" in
/boot/loader.conf

However this does not work as expected since the passphrase does not seem to be
received by the kernel. (i.e. the kernel prompts again for the GELI passphrase)

AFAIK, a function to receive the passphrase in the kernel was committed in
-HEAD in r273489. However a look at a recent -STABLE (r283270)
sys/geom/eli/g_eli.c suggests that this particular piece of code was never
MFC'd.
