Yes, it's the XNU booter, but binaries are easier to debug when it comes to reading out the bootloader info:
I don't know if the binary above is 1:1 built from those sources, but it's definitely close enough.
The guest is the bootloader which is an open source multiboot binary. The fact that it bootstraps OSX is a detail. It's a kernel that worked with -kernel before and is now broken. It also works with grub. I'd go as far as guessing that there are more kernels experiencing the same breakage.
I think we can reasonably argue that multiboot kernels (especially the one kernel this whole thing was written for) that worked before shouldn't be broken, as that's clearly a regression. And usually regressions warrant reverts IMHO.
But either way, I'd rather have this fixed. And once I'm through my pile of other patches to review and commit I'll gladly take a look at it. Until then, I'd rather have a 1.0.1 that works with what worked before, so behaves the same as 0.15 rather than a version that regresses.
