i just tested the loader.efi from base.txz from:

it does not boot. It seems that the new version is there not included.

I tried with the loader.efi from base.txz from:

it boots fine.
If I use beadm for my ZFS I expect that I have to manually edit the
loader.rc from the efi partition to load the correct environment or?

Thanks for this tip!
