Thanks, been waiting to see this.

Interested in testing this out. Using Thinkpad X230.

If I wanted to test this on a USB Key version of the installer, could I just fetch https://reviews.freebsd.org/file/data/xxigv3tkegtefkvmzkko/PHID-FILE-2ictbi3caifzol7xf5fq/D4104.diff, patch my CURRENT /usr/src and build a usb key img?

Does that mean it will work with ZFS + drive encryption via the installer?
