I haven't looked at the code, but there appears to be a limit on the amount of code that can be loaded as modules via the bootloader.
Put many (e.g., > 15) large modules to boot.cfg. Upon reboot, some kind of a limit-related error message quickly flashes, and the boot hangs.
Either document the limit in boot.cfg(5) or, better yet, document it and allow the boot to continue with reduced number of modules.
