http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/virtualization-guest.html badly needs ToC and instructions for QEMU.
qemu-img create -f qcow2 freebsd.qcow 2G
qemu -hda freebsd.qcow -cdrom FreeBSD-9.0-RC1-i386-bootonly.iso -boot d -m 256
qemu -hda freebsd.qcow -m 256
(or you can use `qemu-kvm` binary, but that failed for me)
Give gavin this PR as he has a patch for it that adds information.
Putting this in the doceng queue.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.
qemu-kvm isn't relevant for FreeBSD since only Linux supports KVM - there _was_ a KVM kernel module for FreeBSD at one point but it wasn't maintained (https://www.freshports.org/emulators/kqemu-kmod/ notes its removal in 2016).
I will upload patch patches on Phabricator after I finish my current work.
