The **hw.pci.mcfg=0** line in /boot/loader.conf is so that your 
booting won't hang the same way it did on installation without 
manual parameters, shouldn't be related to your current issue.
Remember to add the comment linking to the bug as well, so that 
you can remove it when those changes land in -CURRENT
Also add yourself to the CC field in the bug, that way you can 
help test those changes.

Your current issue sounds like a problem with the way you 
installed / set up the system and is probably better for 

FWIW: I boot using EFI from ZFS in a geli-encrypted partition in a 
GPT disk, I recall some manual fiddling but those were likely 
because I needed sth particular.
