loader.conf issues

I did a quick search for this and didn't see anyone seeing this.

I am running 7.0-PRERELEASE amd64

This is my loader.conf:


However, this is what happens after reboot:

store1# sysctl -a | grep kmem
vm.kmem_size_scale: 3
vm.kmem_size_max: 3221225472
vm.kmem_size_min: 0
vm.kmem_size: 1073741824
store1# sysctl -a | grep kern.maxvn
kern.maxvnodes: 100000

Is there some issue with vm.kmem_size_max being larger than 3G?  If this 
has been fixed, let me know.  I am using 7.0-RELEASE loader from amd64 iso 
since for some reason, when I complile a new loader on this Dell 2950-iii, 
I get an unusable loader (it just hangs before the screen to select safe 
mode, single user mode, etc).
