Re: amd64 boot broken (was: Re: sys_select() issue? (Was: ...) )

And on 16 Aug 2011 David Holland replied:
Ok, I'm now seeing this behavior from "anita test". However, I'm not
convinced the problem is that it's failing to notice the halt message.

In particular, when I try to run qemu directly on the disk image left
behind, which is the same thing that "anita test" will be doing after
that halt, it doesn't work; qemu goes into an infinite loop and just
sits there until killed.

Running qemu without -nographic, however, makes it much clearer what's
going on: it gets as far as "NetBSD/x86 ffsv2 Primary Bootstrap" and
then the virtual machine resets.

(Should it be using ffsv2? That seems a trifle odd.)

This is on amd64 with an up-to-the-minute tree. So I guess someone
broke the bootloader.

This is still broken on -current from a few minutes ago... Is anyone looking into what is happening?
