John, thank you for your suggestions. We've discussed them with
Alexander and decided to make spoof-off implemented in userland via
environment options. 

So my plan has some changes. Next week I'll try to implement "spoof-off" in feature_present(3). We've already discussed the way of setting required environment variables. It seems that FEATURES_DISABLED="geom_journal compat_freebsd6 compat_freebsd7" is the preffered way.

Also I'll need to adjust my Perforce configuration, because right now I only have src/sys mapped in my client view. BTW where should feature_present(1) be placed? I think that usr/sbin is the most appropriate place? 

And of course I'll continue to add more features in the kernel :-) Last week I had an unexpected delay in this part of the work, hope that this week will be better.
