	i updated my kernel to a post-ksyms kernel and it blew up before
	printing the copyright.  it turns out that my old ofwboot.xcf
	is passing garbage for symbols (so many things make more sense
	now!) and instead of ddb_init() just printing something like
	    [ no valid netbsd symbol tables found ]
	ksyms_init() crashes somewhere...

	i was able to get a working system with a 1.6.1 ofwboot.xcf - a
	-current one seems to have separate issues (CLAIM failures....)


	use older ofwboot.xcf with new kernel and go boom.
