bhyve userboot -- lack of inb()/outb() in ficl

I noticed that userboot doesn't contain inb()/outb() bindings:

from loader(8):
     inb (port -- char)
                    Reads a byte from a port.

     outb (port char --)
                    Writes a byte to a port.

Yet, manual page for bhyveload(8) claims:

     bhyveload is based on loader(8) and will present an interface identical
     to the FreeBSD loader on the user's terminal.

Is there any interest in adding this functionality?
