Both installboot(8) and the kernel already do what is required to make this work. ok kn@ Tested: biosboot on vmm: kn, stsp biosboot and efiboot on server hardware: stsp
Support on the arm64 platform can be expected soon.
Great work, Stefan (and Klemens, and everyone else involved)!

Slight correction to the title and summary: This is RAID 1C *boot* support. RAID 1C support was already committed.

Both arm64 and sparc64 can boot from root on 1C softraid now, but we still need to shake out a few bugs in installboot(8) such that fresh installations will actually succeed.
For sparc64, the last fix went in today, arm64 still needs more love.
I'll update documentation once a fresh and unpatched snapshot install to 1C works as expected (like amd64 currently behaves).
