-A option generates ACPI tables on the fly (by calling out to
iasl) and puts them in memory somewhere - just below the bootrom I think. These tables are not used at all by the illumos C userland, the bootrom has built-in tables which are used instead. The
-A option in FreeBSD is for bhyveload/grub2-bhyve (direct kernel booting) which we don't have.
As part of the privileges work I dropped -A from the manual, and made it a no-op (or intended too, since otherwise I would need to have granted fork/exec privileges).
I'll clean up these other mentions too.
