:yes: loader doesn't contain the needed logic to find and use a non-primary=
:slice. can you try manually setting the boot device in loader to the right=
:device? if that doesn't work, somebody needs to hack loader to support it (=

    /boot/loader itself does not have any size limitations so the support
    can be added if someone would like to make a project out of it.  It's
    basically adding an ability to recurse through slices marked as extended
    partitions, yah?
