Here is the patch against the latest revision to make grub-probe working on 
FreeBSD. It includes this ioctl call, FreeBSD device names parsing, and 
accounts for the fact that disk drives are character devices under FreeBSD. 
Below is the reply from FSF:

Here's how the contributor answered the question, “ Did you copy any
files or text written by someone else in these changes?”

Copied some lines from the same project, then modified.

[Which files have you changed so far, and which new files have you written
so far?]
