        -current's /usr/mdec/boot is no longer capable to multiboot
        xen kernels:

        After my report around March this year

        quite the same problem (beside others) disappered suddenly, so
        I did not send-pr at that time. But no it's back!

        Rebuild everything from scratch did not help.

        Excerpt of my /boot.cfg:

          menu=Boot Xen 3.3 customized:load /netbsd-DOM0 console=pc; multiboot 
/xen33.gz dom0_mem=2097152

        which was working before.

        I also checked releng's mdec/boot versions (amd64 + i386)
        which show the same problem.
        Try to multiboot a -current based xen33 kernel/system w/
        NetBSD's mdec/boot.
        Not exactly tested, but mdec/boot of -current about one month
        ago should work.
