Do you know the FBSD boot process internals well?

I discussed this at Linuxforum.dk this spring with some FBSD people
and have a contact I can dig up if you want to pick up the ball.

The idea is to short-circuit all the BIOS junk that ADLO emulates and
have LB/elfboot/FILO start the kernel directly, as is done with

Since the *BSD boot process is split into several steps that may not
be quite as easy as with Linux however.
