[Bug 257722] Current RELEASE builds (11.4, 12.2, 13.0) give BTX boot crash, where 11.3 worked fine.

--- Comment #4 from jwdevel_at_gmail.com ---
Out of curiousity, I have been looking at the BTX source to see what
differences there are between 11.3 and 11.4, but interestingly, I find *none*!

Having both source trees checked out in SVN, I do:

    $ diff -du -r src_11.3-RELEASE/stand/i386/btx
src_11.4-RELEASE/stand/i386/btx

and see no differences (other than version number comments).

But maybe I am looking in the wrong place? I am not sure if these are the BTX
sources relevant to me. I notice it is in /i386, but I do not see any /amd64
directory, so am guessing that this is what would get run on my system....

It is the same situation when looking at src/usr.sbin/btxld/**

So, I am currently at a loss as to what could be causing the different
behavior. But I am not at all experienced with the boot loader, so might just
misunderstand something.
