when I overwrite loader.efi with a backup file of the previous loader.efi, the machine boots up again.

What is the age of the previous loader.efi? I'd like to establish the time range so we might narrow down the list of suspect commits.
Comment 2 Klaus Küchemann 2021-09-13 14:15:54 UTC
(In reply to Mitchell Horne from comment #1)
I did a few git pull/buildworld/buildkernel the last days and the breakage comes 
very close to  : https://reviews.freebsd.org/D30848  ( by guessing... seems to be a major change).
last "good" loader.efi approx. 3 day ago. So the new broken one is from a fresh build.
Comment 3 Leandro Lupori freebsd_committer 2021-09-13 14:41:15 UTC
I'm also experiencing boot failures, but on PowerPC64.

I can boot if I revert b4cb3fe0e39a/D30848.
