Any boot loader configuration file? (I am using -current.)

Something like boot checks for /boot.conf and if exists reads the lines
and uses with userconf(4).

That would be easier and faster for me so I can do "disable ohci" (versus
manually or creating custom kerne) so my keyboardf works.

We already have boot.cfg(5). See the patch below which hacks in support for a userconf script:

That patch is missing a #include <machine/bootinfo.h> in boot2.c IIRC
