Less fancy (easier) approach is to:
- have special file (/etc/boot.default) to be read from /boot
- /boot pass the content along to the kernel
- the kernel modifies device configuration hint based on the content
It works quite well, actually. Interactive editing (like FreeBSD
does) have problem keeping the changes across kernel rebuild.
