Typically, this is caused by a bug in MI code which only triggers with
specific memory layouts depending on the exact machine model and certain
amounts of RAM, though. That's why it would be helpful if people would at
least test booting BETAs and RCs. It probably can be worked around by
limiting the memory employed via the hw.physmem tunable to something like
512 MB for that machine. I need to see whether I can upgrade my X1 to 1 GB
so I can reproduce it.
