It's not the booting that is a problem. That was working fine until I
had to wipe out the MBR when my disklabel was chomped last week.. It's
the grub command-line "shell"/installer that won't work now (admittedly I
have not updated my grub boot blocks in a while either, so it may be a
pre-GEOM issue). Would not accessing /dev/adX with open() or so go through
