I do use the precanned bhyve-script "vm0" (if that is what you mean). It
explicitly mentions linux support. bhyveload can't be user for other images
than FreeBSD so I don't know how to use your script for a linux OS.

I assume the image is file backed as I have not assigned a dedicated
partition to the vm (and I don't know how to do that).
