Dualboot Devuan with FreeBSD

Well, Days ago I decided to give the Jump  from Linux Mint 17.03, my main distro since 2015 to Devuan ASCII.  In my last configuration I had installed FreeBSD, Windows7, and Haiku alongside Mint. To Install Devuan I decided to format all the HD and then adding the other OS. My first one was FreeBSD, but Devuan grub says it doesn't recognize the filesystem.

At the moment my /etc/grub.d/custom_40

menuentry 'FreeBSD' --class freebsd --class bsd --class os {
        insmod part_msdos
        insmod ufs2
        set root="(hd0,msdos1,bsd1 >)"
        kfreebsd /boot/loader

Perhaps the fourth or fifth combination I tried hmm

Another important data.


fdisk -l

Any idea? I think that devuan's grub doesn't support UFS but, I am not sure
