I just noticed that netbooting seems to be broken (from a laptop where
it worked previously). There is 1-2 seconds of loader activity and then
the laptop resets.

confirming. i thought this was a bug on my side, but now evidence hardens.

netbooting here from a hammer nfs mount.

I also see this, with HEAD of today:
'BTX halted' with register dump, and reboot af few seconds after,
e.g. when using installer live CD as netboot server.

I works with 2.0.0 release CD.

I could hook up a serial console, if BTX dump help debugging,
manual partial transcript:

pxe_open: gateway ip:

int=0000000d err=0000c67c ..
BTX halted

Works for me using HEAD from yesterday
(what went into 2.2.0 release).

Can we close this?

It was also working for me on 2.2.0 today.

I also think this can be closed.
