Yeah, with this DEBUG option enabled I see something. The last entry is
about mmu and translations. Then it hangs. Well, it is in an endless
loop inside the FreeBSD kernel.
I my repeat myself, but the kernel starts booting from the loader.
And then, maybe after the mmu is on in the kernel? the exception occurs.
The dma-alloc issues I found in the archives appear much earlier in the
boot process, right? And do I get it right, that if needed, the
dma-alloc, I'd get an exception?
(Me new in this business ;)
