Re: NetBSD 8.0 Release Candidate 2 available
Excerpts from Martin Husemann on netbsd-announce:

> Many changes have been made since 7.0. Here are a few highlights:
- On i386/amd64 cpus:
Meltdown mitigation: SVS (separate virtual address spaces)
Spectre mitigation (support in gcc, used by default for kernels)
Where is the UEFI bootloader in i386? I don't see anything EFI-related in /usr/mdec (this if for NetBSD 8.99.17)
But /usr/mdec for amd64 includes
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 213764 May 25 14:55 /media/zip1/usr/mdec/bootia32.efi
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 203783 May 25 14:55 /media/zip1/usr/mdec/bootx64.efi
That is for NetBSD 8.99.18
Here /media/zip1 is my mount point.
I'd like to see how UEFI boot compares to legacy BIOS-type boot for both NetBSD and FreeBSD.
