Description

I seem to be spending quite a lot of time talking people through dropping to the loader prompt and configuring nmi=kmdb so that it is possible to drop into kmdb by sending an NMI. Similarly with the framebuffer I've had to talk people through dropping back to the old plain VGA console mode.

The loader boot option screen could be improved to make these things easier.
