[ler@FreeBSD.org: Add gpart_geom_gpt to amd64 DEFAULTS?]

Larry Rosenman-5
I had sent this privately to imp@, but received no response.

Can we have a discussion about it?

Thanks!

User-Agent: NeoMutt/20180716

Warner,
    I moved over to your amd64 minimal configuration, which got me back
    ~400 meg of memory.  I doing that, I hadn't added geom_part_gpt to
    the config, nor loader.conf, so my first boot failed.  I'm
    wondering if it makes sense to add geom_part_gpt to the amd64/i386
    DEFAULTS file since GPT is becoming more the norm.

    Comments?

Thanks,
Larry

Sorry to not get back to you... I've been hurrying to get stuff related to
12 out of my queue...

We currently have:
options         GEOM_PART_BSD
options         GEOM_PART_EBR
options         GEOM_PART_EBR_COMPAT
options         GEOM_PART_MBR

in there. I don't think it would be bad to add

options         GEOM_PART_GPT

as well... It likely should be added to arm64 DEFAULTS as well.

std.armv[67] is less clear, though, since they boot off of MBR for the most
part.

So, what would it take to move it forward?  I can gen up a Phab and/or
PR.

I'd like to see it make 12.

Thanks.

Warner Losh
This is a bit of a no-brainer yes change, but I'll give people a day or so
to object.
