6.4's boot loader is 221k
6.3's boot loader is 217k

Copying 6.3 boot loader to the 6.4 solved the keyboard lockup problem,  
but it still panics during the boot.  At last now I get the entire  
panic to the serial console so I can cut/paste.

cpu2: <ACPI CPU> on acpi0
cpu3: <ACPI CPU> on acpi0
pcib0: <ACPI Host-PCI bridge> port 0xcf8-0xcff on acpi0
pci0: <ACPI PCI bus> on pcib0

Automatic reboot in 15 seconds - press a key on the console to abort
