Re: Hammer boot cannot load modules anymore

I'm using the pure Hammer bootloader.
At first it worked, but now, after using the system for a while I cannot
load modules at boot time anymore. So I always have to disable acpi,
otherwise it will hang shortly after showing some progress trying to
load the module (it just shows a few "/", "|", backslash, "-"
characters, then it hangs).
can you ctrl-alt-del the machine at that point or is it locked?
The kernel itself boots just fine. I am using the GENERIC kernel.
I'm not sure how to debug this... If your file system is small enough,
you could put it up somewhere for me to have a look. Alternatively you
can build a standalone hammer reader from the boot source in
lib/libstand/hammerread.c and try to debug why it can't load the modules.
I guess it has something to do with the btree layout.
