Not yet. My problem is that it's not that easy ... (at least
for me, but maybe I'm missing something). 

The main issue for me is that I don't have a spare box
running 7.x. All my FreeBSD boxes are running 6.x

I've tried to make a new 7.1-BETA bootable ISO from the
patched sources (make release), but failed ... this is the
first time I've ever attempted this, and it seems that you
cannot do that from a 6.x box (I have a full CVS mirror of
FreeBSD, and a fresh checkout of RELENG_7).

The next thing to do (which I already tried once, and that
was also not an painless path) is to boot the box with
FreeBSD-6.1 (amd64, no data corruption here) and upgrade to
7.x patching the sources along the way. I need to find a
free afternoon in my agenda to fit this ...

I will get back with info as soon as I have done it.
