That's good! Probably what was happening was that it didn't really stop at
the quoted point, but later on when the PCI devices were probed. However,
it probably happened so fast it couldn't be transcribed.

Also, we have seen some alphas shipped with video hardware that wasn't well
supported by SRM, or at least, wasn't supported by the version of SRM
preload in flash as shipped.
