Can someone find a proper email address for Eric McCorkle to put in the CC list.
Comment 2 Allan Jude freebsd_committer 2018-06-12 14:03:17 UTC
Eric's Address is: eric@metricspace.net but Bugzilla doesn't have an account for it
Comment 3 Warner Losh freebsd_committer 2018-06-12 14:30:52 UTC
Ian Lepore posted a more generic, GELI booting patch that works everywhere. We will need to reconcile that patch with Eric's work. The sticking point on Eric's work is that it is a UEFI driver and works only there and may undo the layering stuff that was recently added for MBR + disklabel setups. We'll need to see which elements of it are truly required after Ian's work.

We also need improvements to the test-harness.

My architecture/device-neutral solution to this problem, not yet tested in the EFI environment but expected to work there, can be found at https://reviews.freebsd.org/D15743

I had already privately asked Eric if/how he wanted to be notified.

  bsdinstall/zfsboot: Enable new UEFI+GELI support

  After r336252 it is no longer necessary to have a separate bootpool when
  booting from an encrypted disk with UEFI.

  This change also switches the EFI System Partition contents from
  the 800 KB boot1.efifat to a new 200 MB filesystem created with newfs_msdos
  and uses loader.efi directly, instead of boot1.efi.
