Description

FreeBSD changes:
https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=336532

It is confusing to emphasise zfs in loader name, we really do support zfs, ufs, pcfs, hsfs, nfs, tftp there.

The visible change for user is that /boot/zfsloader is renamed to /boot/loader. The change also does affect gptzfsboot, as it is looking for loader to be loaded and executed - however, we also bump the loader version to ensure the be activation will also trigger installboot to update the gptzfsboot.
