Thanks to Ruslan Ermilov (ru@) for discovering the fix for the problem of
loading modules.

The entry from UPDATING:
        Module loading has been fixed.  Some older installations will
        drop proper module_path initalization and modules will fail to
        load properly.  If you have a line in /boot/loader.rc that says:
        "initialize drop", do (i386 only):
                cp /usr/src/sys/boot/i386/loader/loader.rc /boot/loader.rc
                chown root:wheel /boot/loader.rc
                chmod 444 /boot/loader.rc
