To eliminate the BSDs as the source of the problem, I just tried booting an
ISO of Memtest86 (which boots v4.3 when UEFI is not present) and got the
same results.  The bootloader comes up, but as soon as it tries to actually
load the program, the machine locks up ("Loading memtest...ready." and then
lock up).

If it makes any difference, this Pixel 2 has 16Gb of RAM.
