Thank you for your comments.

The User Config menu is completely disabled and isn't available
in -CURRENT now.

I strongly doubt it will ever come back. You see, we can now
set/unset/edit device resource "hints" from the loader(8) prompt,
thus, there is little need to have the old User Config menu compiled
into the kernel.

Please also have a look at my draft on the man page for device.hints(5).

The only thing which were available in the User Config, but is not in
the loader(8) is the "Visual" User Config option.

But, I expect such visual front-end to edit the device resource hints
can be added to the loader, in one way or another.
