	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.
