Yes, it is. I took a bootable UEFI installation (in VirtualBox) and replaced
the efi/boot/*.efi files on the MSDOS/EFI partition with the ones from
the latest netbsd-9 build and it stopped booting as you describe.

Disk layout is GPT on wd0, three partitions (one EFI, one NetBSD FFS and one
NetBSD swap), /netbsd on the FFS one is supposed to be booted.

bootx64.efi starts and shows its countdown and then goes into a loop like:

booting NAME=:netbsd - starting in 0 seconds.
open netbsd: No such file or directory
booting NAME=:onetbsd - staring in 0 seconds.
open onetbsd: No such file or directory

Same failure with latest HEAD bootx64.efi.

Emmanuel, could you please have a look?
