Upgraded a box to yesterday's -CURRENT, and am experiencing two problems:

(1) the machine spins rebooting after loading /boot/loader.  I don't get a
chance to interupt the boot once /boot/loader starts.  Unfortunately, my
serial console support also seems to be broken, so I can't read the error
that flicks up before the reboot.

(2) if I try to boot /boot/kernel/kernel directly, rather than via
/boot/loader, it hangs in the twiddling bar.

If I load the old loader and kernel, things work fine.  I'm currently
trying to diagnose the serial console problem, and will post more as I
figure something out.

There are reports on that channel about other machines having the same
problem, so if you're upgrading, make sure to keep an old loader around.
