My old iMac G3 list report from 2015-Mar-30 (
https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ppc/2015-March/007563.html ) for
head (11-CURRENT) -r280598 still basically applies to head (12-CURRENT)

Although the tid is now 100040 if I remember right. If I remember right, the
0x7c has not changed, nor has the type of instruction listed.
The SSD boots various other PowerMac G4's and G5's just fine.
Back on 2015-Mar-30 I reported that 10.1-STABLE of that time worked fine. (I
was not explicit about the -r.)
[Unlike back then there is no problem with -r308247 booting the PowerMac G5's.]
[The oddball PowerMac G4 that no version of FreeBSD that I've tried has ever
managed to boot still has the status as of -r308247: it gets to the same point
and silently hangs. Mac OS X and Lubuntu and the like boot it just fine.]
