Sure. However, the user can always override the assumptions. And I think the CD case is actually quite easy to fix, if that's a blocking issue. > My idea was to add the following behaviour: > > * bootloader specified and bootloader_args specified -- use that as is > * bootloader not specified, bootloader_args specified -- call > bhyveload $bootloader_args $default_bhyveloader_args > * bootloader and bootloader_args not set -- use defaults (current > behaviour) > * bootloader specified, bootloader_args missing -- fail here Ok. I think the grub-bhyve stuff is just a special case of the 4th bullet here; but otherwise my patch matches up with this behavior. > Actually, I've implemented that already, but didn't send because it > needs some more testing. Ok. I am happy to guinea-pig bhyve improvements for libvirt, if you need it. > The reason of my concern about adding a special handling of grub-bhyve > case that, as I've mentioned, we have to make assumptions and there are > also caveats you mentioned.

I'm not comfortable postponing improvements indefinitely for vaporware. In the wonderful bhyve-UEFI future, we can ignore/warn about <bootloader>. > There are some comments inline.

I did run syntax-check, but did not see any error around there. syntax-check has lots of console output; does it log somewhere else too?
