David: thank you. 

Using a computer that's not bugged, I installed FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE to a USB
flash drive then put your patched bootx64.efi in place. 

I attempted to boot an HP ProBook 440 G8 from the drive. No change to the
symptoms, as far as I can tell; no progress beyond presentation of EFI
framebuffer information. 

Is it enough to have the patched file in the EFI partition? Or must the file
(also) be copied elsewhere, maybe with a different name?
