Description

The loader default behavior is to check for currently used file system and if it is zfs, the loader will set the zfs-bootfs and other needed properties, which is all nice.

However, if there is an setup where it is desired to keep running on boot archive based ramdisk, we would need an mechanism to tell loader not to set up zfs specific properties for us; the logical way for this would be that fstype property will be set to something else - like ufs, and if fstype is set and is not zfs, the loader would skip setting zfs properties.
