Testing a VIMAGE enabled kernel in the FreeBSD cluster

I submitted this RFC to enable VIMAGE in the GENERIC kernel config
on January 5, 2015:


I'm not receiving any major opposition from the idea.

It's a tight schedule, but what is the possibility that we could upgrade
one of the PF firewalls with a VIMAGE kernel sometime in the next 6 weeks,
and test this out.  I would be interested in testing the following,
*not* in a vnet jail, on bare metail:

 (1)  the PF ruleset in the FreeBSD cluster
 (2)  IPv6
 (3)  any other heavy duty network-y stuff that the FreeBSD cluster uses,
       which may not have been heavily tested by developers.
