Trying to boot with a newly-built loader (make world earlier today
from fresh sources) results in:

no matter which kernel I try to boot.  Booting my new kernel with the
old loader (from the DP1 dist) works fine until it tries to start

Booting DP1's GENERIC with the old loader and the new userland works

Clean tree, no funny stuff in make.conf (unless 'CPUTYPE?=ev56' counts
as funny stuff)

<guess type="wild">The loader problem is possibly a compiler issue
(since DP1 was built with gcc 2.95 while my world was built with 3.1).
The init problem is probably a UFS2 f*up; the code has obviously not
been tested on a 64-bit architecture (the UFS2 stuff broke the kernel
