Well, I'm checking the label and config path now, but if I just boot
up a -current kernel from July, prior to the big alpha rollback, then
it works fine. It's up right now, with the "old" kernel.
I'm not installing, just catching up to -current. Also, it was
requested that we try various system types. The eb164 is the only
type I have here that has not reported in with a successful test.
