I'm using the pure Hammer bootloader.

At first it worked, but now, after using the system for a while I cannot load modules at boot time anymore. So I always have to disable acpi, otherwise it will hang shortly after showing some progress trying to load the module (it just shows a few "/", "|", backslash, "-" characters, then it hangs).

can you ctrl-alt-del the machine at that point or is it locked?

The kernel itself boots just fine. I am using the GENERIC kernel.

I'm not sure how to debug this... If your file system is small enough, you could put it up somewhere for me to have a look. Alternatively you can build a standalone hammer reader from the boot source in lib/libstand/hammerread.c and try to debug why it can't load the modules. I guess it has something to do with the btree layout.
