Hello Roger,

Thanks for the prompt reply and for the patch.

I made a test and now we have a bit more of information. Seems the problem
is because the kernel is too large.

OK load /boot/kernel/kernel
/boot/kernel/kernel Trying to load a RAW file at 0x80001000 Error reading
/boot/kernel/kernel: file too large
Unable to load /boot/kernel/kernel as a multiboot payload kernel
can't load file '/boot/kernel/kernel': invalid argument.

Here is the size of my kernel:
root@e550:/usr/src/sys/boot # du /boot/kernel/kernel
12885 /boot/kernel/kernel

Best Regards,
