That error message appears to be coming from Pfsense. After searching
around a bit, it appears that the boot loop issue has occurred in multiple
models of Pfsense firewall appliances and is due to filesystem corruption.
The most common suggestion I see is to reboot into single user mode and run
`/sbin/fsck -y /` until you don't see any errors appear.
As for the cause, some people mention abrupt shutdown due to a power
outage. If the problem occurs multiple times then you might consider
swapping out the SSD.

I am a new user of Coreboot who recently purchased a Protectli firewall
with Coreboot pre-installed. The firewall is running PfSense that I
installed on it. Everything was going ok for a few days until I started
having issues with PfSense and now I am having problems getting PfSense to
launch at all. I believe this is related to a hardware issue with the
firewall. During the coreboot launch I am getting an infinite loop which is
triggered at the following line:
cpu reset proxy stopped cpu 1
Sounds like an issue with the hardware to me. I believe I saw this same
issue referencing cpu 2 as well. I have tried over a period of several
weeks to boot up and I always get this message and then a loop back to the
the coreboot initialization. At this point I cannot tell if this is a
coreboot, pfsense, or hardware issue, and I am getting ready to just buy
another firewall with pfsense already installed and I am hoping someone has
the time to give me a brief idea of what might be going on here. I am
fairly PC savy but am having difficulty drilling down to what might be
driving this specific issue on the web. I do like your product and plan to
purchase a PC with coreboot in the near future.
Thanks a lot for your time.
