Architecture: pmax
Machine: pmax
The pmax secondary bootloader lives at 0x80710000.
The pmax GENERIC kernel is still smaller than this, (_end is at 806a07a8),
but when /boot loads the symbol table for ddb, it overwrites the executing code.
Boot pmax GENERIC kernel using pmax bootloader.
Make the kernel the right size again or move the bootloader up further.
