Colin added this to HEAD recently:


This will allow setting the passphrase at the boot-loader, so it doesn't
get prompted for again during boot. I think there was some work by
dteske@ to add this to the FreeBSD boot menus, but maybe you can use it
manually for now.

We are using it in PC-BSD to supply the passphrase directly from GRUB,
so we only get prompted a single time.

(Before somebody asks why we use grub)
We are using grub to do full-disk encryption, without a unencrypted
/boot, among other things :)
