It'd be nice if the kernel of FreeBSD was made Multiboot-compliant, or at least if a patch was available, so that end users and/or kFreeBSD-based distributions could use it.

This is not particularly hard, because the kernel of FreeBSD already uses ELF. It's probably a matter of:

- Adding a Multiboot header
- Adding a Multiboot entry point
- Adapt code so that it can obtain information from multiboot_info structure when it is provided
