Try to do:
(hd0) usb.img
(hd1) */dev/zvol/<pool>/<zvol>*

*grub-bhyve -m -r hd0 -M 1024M linuxguestbhyve -A -H -P -s
0:0,hostbridge -s 1:0,lpc -s 2:0,virtio-net,tap1 -s
3:0,virtio-blk,usb.img \
    -s 4:0,ahci-hd,/dev/zvol/<pool>/<zvol> -l com1,stdio -c 4 -m 1024M

But to be honest not exactly sure what should be the usb image type,
hd or cd or? Or what else I miss.*
