+1. I have used this module in the past and it is extremely useful. Thanks for 
the pointer, I wasn’t aware it had been updated for FreeBSD 10.x so recently. 
I’ve also wondered why this is not part of FreeBSD by default.

Aoyama-san, do you have any objection to this code being included in FreeBSD? 
If not, can you formally assign it a BSD or other friendly license? Thank you 
again for the work!

Trasz (or anyone), is there other work to support iSCSI booting and/or IBFT on 
FreeBSD? Anything else isboot might conflict with? Any problems with 
integrating the code or with the code itself?

In the mean time, I’m going to work on adding an isboot port to the tree to 
further ease installation and increase exposure.
