Hm, typically when I can't even get to the verbose logging I find
that the issue is that the booter can't even find either the kernel
or the kextcache. There shouldn't be any permissions issues at that
stage, but generally booter + kernel + gets you to verbose output and
then kext_cache is just about the first thing loaded once the kernel
takes over. Perhaps the issue is that the kernel failed to load?
Has anyone else had problems getting a home-rolled kernel to load
