I definitely have physical access, it's my desktop, laptop and build 
machines.

First thing I'm doing is disable cron job removing old zfs snapshots, so 
state is not lost.

Since this is involving only UEFI, loader and kernel, I've recovered the 
old parts and now I have the machine reporting the usual amount of 
memory, so I should be able to extract the requested data and post it 
shortly.

Thanks for your help anyway!
