Which is always good advice, but I can clarify the effect on these...

The only change in /boot is /boot/defaults/loader.conf:

diff -r1.26 -r1.27
< loader_conf_files="/boot/loader.conf /boot/loader.conf.local"
> loader_conf_files="/boot/device.hints /boot/loader.conf /boot/loader.conf.local"

ie: /boot/device.hints is searched for.

If you override loader_conf_files in your own loader.conf, you will need to
take care of it (or use static hints).

/modules should be unchanged by these commits.

I wimped out and have not set GENERIC use device.hints yet as I'm not
sure how best to connect that up to the release process.

Also note: if you do not use loader(8), you *MUST* compile the hints
in statically.
