Re: kern/51148: i386 install floppies no longer boot
I have now run the tests you asked for.
> Does reverting only  fix the problem?
Yes. The system still doesn't install because the kernel is unable
to exec /sbin/init, but this is a different bug; when I don't revert
, the kernel does not even start (there are no kernel messages
on the console).

I tested with this patch against 2016.05.22.09.10.37 sources:
diff -u -r1.124 locore.S
--- locore.S 15 May 2016 07:17:53 -0000 1.124
+++ locore.S 25 May 2016 14:33:35 -0000

movl RELOC(tablesize),%ecx /* length of BOOTSTRAP TABLES */
/* We are on (4). Map ISA I/O mem (later atdevbase) RWX. */
and it did _not_ fix the problem.

What do you host VirtualBox on? You can test the i386 port using anita+qemu
even on a non-i386 host.
