As the machine is normally my file server, it will probably be tomorrow
before I can arrange to capture the actual messages.  In the meantime,
the machine's "/boot.cfg" file:

# rndseed not available though PXE/NFS
#menu=Boot normally:rndseed /var/db/entropy-file;boot netbsd
#menu=Boot single user:rndseed /var/db/entropy-file;boot netbsd -s
#menu=Disable ACPI:rndseed /var/db/entropy-file;boot netbsd -2
#menu=Disable ACPI and SMP:rndseed /var/db/entropy-file;boot netbsd -12
#menu=Disable SMP:rndseed /var/db/entropy-file;boot netbsd -1
# Hmm.  "banner=" statements are silently ignored.
banner=* technoskunk.fur i386/amd64 diskless client *
banner=Select one of the following options:
menu=Boot normally:boot netbsd
menu=Boot single user:boot netbsd -s
menu=Disable ACPI:boot netbsd -2

menu=Boot normally (serial console):consdev com0;boot netbsd

Not on this machine, yet.  I can arrange to test -current when I
capture the module-loading messages for 8.0_BETA.
