Topic: Lenovo Laptops and bsdinstall zfsboot with MBR layout...
Should we do the quick patch to change the default
from /boot/boot0 to /boot/mbr:
--- zfsboot (revision 258016)
+++ zfsboot (working copy)
@@ -764,7 +764,7 @@ zfs_create_diskpart()

That would fix things for Lenovo laptops for the next
release until I finish up the bootcode selection menu.
I'd like to take my time in making sure Allan and I design
a worthy bootcode selection menu.
This patch looks good (I don't remember why it was boot0 in the first
place). I think gpart automatically installs something like /boot/mbr by
default, so I'd be interested to know if making the diff purely negative
On another note, I think we should move away from a selector. Right now,
we have three kinds of boot code:
1. ZFS boot code
2. UFS boot code
Unifying 1 and 2 would help a lot -- I don't know of any reason we need
both except for tradition. #3 is probably best done as a post-install
config step ("Install FreeBSD boot manager" or something), which also
means it works for UFS systems.
