I've seen something similar on Alpha when I removed the dc driver
(leaving xl and miibus in). Removing dc and config / make depend /
make /make install / reboot left me with a crashing alpha box.
It only got as far as the loader printing a few lines on loading modules.
And then a 'kernel stack not valid, HALT' line.

Doing config -r on the same kernel config file worked OK.
