Loader broken in Head?

Sorry for the late reply.

I updated to the latest sources and the loader boots again correctly.  I'm quite puzzled as to what commit corrected this tho, between my original problematic build of 25th Oct ~ 2200 GMT and to my build now - 10th Nov.

Many thanks to John and others for the work to correct this problem.

Nevermind about the compiling part.  Pilot error.  Stale includes
are to blame.  a make world fixed all that.

And a -current loader as of today works just fine.  I'd suggest that
to Red Neck also to see if it clears up his problem.

Now where did I put that pointy hat...
