Can we also add the variables to the usr.sbin/periodic/periodic.conf defaults file. We likely want daily_backup_gpart_enable="YES" but daily_backup_gpart_verbose="NO" and daily_backup_efi_enable="NO"

Each of these variables will also need to be added to share/man/man5/periodic.conf.5

usr.sbin/periodic/etc/daily/221.backup-gpart

Since the EFI partition might be 250+ MB, we might want to give this its own enable/disable flag

  • Document changes for new periodic variables in periodic.conf(5). Set defaults for new variables in periodic.conf.

This creates a backup of the contents of the EFI System partition (boot code), not the partition table
