How far can we reduce the FreeBSD kernel, to the point of only using busybox, the boot system to start the system, to make it very small? (Sorry for possible spelling mistakes, I'm from Brazil and I have a huge appreciation for FreeBSD)
Hi. I made a custom kernel by copying GENERIC to a new file called MYKERNEL and I built kernel with KERNCONF=MYKERNEL. My problem is when i commented out those two lines below, make buildkernel command fails with errors. If I don't comment out these lines, make doesn't fail. I would want to know...
Hello all, my first post!

I have a ready-to-use U-boot, and now I want to replicate the Linux steps of cooking kernel and rootfs images for aarch64 FreeBSD. My goal is to flash them to a 16-Mbyte SPI Flash chip.
1) Firstly, would a generic aarch64 FreeBSD release be capable of booting from SPI?
2) Kernel image...
In some places of the kernel config (I'm referring to the amd64 GENERIC one for this topic) I see stuff like this:

device ppbus # Parallel port bus (required)
device lpt # Printer

The last part of section 8.4 of the handbook talks about using an include statement to modify only some options:
While this might seem like...
