System: NetBSD 5.99.7 NetBSD 5.99.7 (GENERIC) #60: Sat Feb

        arch/i386/stand/lib/panic.c:panic() calls exit(0), and
        lib/libsa/exit.c:exit() calls panic("exit"). If the bootloader
        explodes it spits out an endless stream of "exit" messages on the
        Change exit(0) call in i386 panic() to something like:

        for (;;) __asm volatile("hlt");
