10.2 Encrypted UFS install always fails

Hi there,

I have tried 3 times on 2 separate devices (ThinkPad T430 and Gigabyte Brix
GB-BXBT-2807), to do an encrypted UFS install of 10.2, following the
instructions found here:


Every time I end up at the screen pictured below, after a panic:


Is there something missing from that guide? Some change in 10.2 that it
doesn't account for? Or does anyone have any other ideas where I might be
going wrong?

To paraphrase my disk setup procedure:

gpart create -s gpt ada0
gpart add -t freebsd-boot -s 512k -a 4k ada0
gpart add -t freebsd-ufs -l bootfs -s 1g -a 1m ada0
gpart add -t freebsd-ufs -l encrypted -a 1m ada0
gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptboot -i 1 ada0
geli init -b -s 4096 ada0p3
geli attach ada0p3
newfs -U /dev/ada0p2
newfs -U /dev/ada0p3.eli
mount /dev/ada0p3.eli /mnt
mkdir /mnt/unenc
mount /dev/ada0p2 /mnt/unenc
mkdir /mnt/unenc/boot
ln -s unenc/boot /mnt/boot
vi /tmp/bsdinstall_etc/fstab
vi /tmp/bsdinstall_boot/loader.conf


/dev/ada0p2     /unenc ufs     rw,noatime      1       1
/dev/ada0p3.eli  /       ufs     rw,noatime      2       2



Any ideas?
