Small problem: my last good kernel got overwritten.  Strange, but one
"make installkernel" did *not* move /boot/kernel to /boot/kernel.old (I
had previously manually moved /boot/kernel.old to /boot/kernel after
discovering that the new kernel wasn't working properly, then the next
installkernel failed to move it back to kernel.old, for some reason).

About the best I can do for you now will be a verbose boot with the
latest kernel, and try to accurately copy the output by hand.  I'll try
to do that ASAP tomorrow, as it's getting rather late here now.

Sorry!  :-)
