This is where my knowledge of grub booting FreeBSD & DragonFly natively
break doing - I was booting a ufs2 filesystem with an older non-ufs2 capable
grub some time ago, so all I knew was that you'd have to use chainloader in
the absence of being able to spawn /boot/loader natively.

Good to see it's got ufs2 support.
