HEADS-UP: amd64 UEFI boot is broken

2014-11-10 Thread Ed Maste
UEFI booting is broken for amd64 as of r273582 (Oct 24). The symptom is an apparent hang after the loader transfers control to the kernel (no output from the kernel is observed). Until this is addressed you can checkout an earlier revision or revert r273582 locally. -Ed
