Hi John-Mark,

   I can't speak too much to libvirt since I didn't do that work, but
grub-bhyve is really a workaround to boot non-FreeBSD o/s's until a
UEFI/BIOS solution is done. If the changes to libvirt to support this
are large, it's most likely not worth it.


Hmm...  Nathan just did some work to make loader into a userland
program for calling Linux's kexec, could this work be leveraged?

You'd still have to boot Linux to use that, and the issue is not so much booting Linux, but the hoops that grub-bhyve, based on grub2, has to go through to boot non-grub2 distros and o/s's. These issues mostly go away when a native boot loader is used.

later,

Peter.
