New Revision: 250151
URL: http://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/250151

Log:
  MFC r249846:
  
  When rebooting (exiting) from the BTX loader, make sure to restore the
  GDT from the correct segment, otherwise a triple fault would be caused.
  In some virtual environments (VMware, VirtualBox, etc) this could lead
  to a unhandled error or hang in the guest emulation software.
  
  Thanks to avg and jhb for a few hints in the right direction.
