Hi all.

The point is:

    There is completely no way to take a snapshot of SU+J partition
    unless modify one's kernel.

Whether some issue still exist or not,
how about enabling snapshoting SU+J partition
through sysctl variable?

Would you mind to see patch attached?

1. Taking a snapshot of SU+J partition is controlled through sysctl variable.

2. Default to disable.
   One who want to enable it should set the variable manually.

3. The default value in bsdinstall(8) may be left as is.
