GEOM_PART spews warnings like this (IIRC the same ones) for partitions
created by FreeBSD when FreeBSD actually knew the correct (fictitious
BIOS) geometry. Killing GEOM_PART stopped them. Note that GEOM_PART is
inflicted by conf/DEFAULTS, at least for i386.
# Kill bad default options.
# Add non-default options.
GEOM_PART also gave weirdness for FreeBSD partitions, with multiple device
entries for some partitions and other aliasing bugs.
