I noticed Peter Grehan's commit today that suggests it is now possible
to boot Ubuntu Linux under bhyve. I've tried a few things but I can't
seem to get it to start. The manual pages for bhyve(8) and bhyvectl(8)
seem to be missing at the moment, so I'm not sure how to proceed. From
reading vmrun.sh I see it uses bhyveload which is only capable of
booting FreeBSD. Experiments with using various bhyve command lines
similar to that in vmrun.sh didn't succeed.

# bhyve -AI -H -P -c 1 -m 512 \
    -s 0:0,hostbridge \
    -s 1:0,virtio-blk,ubuntu-01.vm \
    -s 2:0,virtio-blk,ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso \
vm exit[0]
        reason          VMX
        rip             0x0000000000000000
        inst_length     0
        error           0
        exit_reason     33
        qualification   0x0000000000000000

So, is it actually possibe to run Linux VMs today, given the userland
tools in -CURRENT? If so, how is it done?
