I *think* all VIMAGE related code in 9.0 has been merged to 8-STABLE.
It is still tagged experimental. Most things work. Is there something
that doesn't work for you?

Speaking unofficially, VIMAGE will not be in the GENERIC kernel for
9.0-RELEASE. It will be tagged stable first, remain an optional feature
for some time and then I think there is the possibility of appearing in
the GENERIC kernel. I believe that's not going to happen soon, if ever.
