I'm not sure what is going on with Grub but note that I changed he
disklabel for DragonFly as well. Well, not precisely changed it, more
like a natural extension to support up to 16 partitions instead of 8.
DragonFly should still be able to mount non-extended partition tables,
so maybe FreeBSD did do something to the disk label... maybe GEOM-related.
