For the record the i386 support was stable and well tested before the update to 
the latest FreeBSD kernel source. This is an awesome change and I welcome it 
however the fact that change has broken the legacy PC support is unfortunate. I 
am yet to decide how this effects the 4.12 release.

Yesterday it was pointed out to me by a new RTEMS user that the PC BSP is used 
in the documentation. For example:


While it might seem unrelated, it would be a shame to document these stages of 
the kernel build and then change BSP when we get to LibBSD documentation when 
that is added to the documentation.

I used the PC BSP in the documentation because it is the most common hardware on 
the planet. A new user coming to RTEMS to see what it can do should have a PC of 
some type they can use to run RTEMS on.
