    boot/loader: Handle the /boot/modules.local
    Weather /boot/modules.local is used during boot or by kldload(8)
    is controlled by a new "local_modules" loader variable.
    If local_modules is set to "YES", /boot/modules.local is also
    appended to kern.module_path sysctl variable for use by kldload(8).
    Setting variable to any other value disables that.
    By default allow modules to searched in /boot/modules.local directory
    since it does not shadow the default kernel modules and has lower
    directory search priority.
