System unbootable after upgrade

Hi there,

after yesterday's upgrades I ended up with an unbootable system where the kernel panics after emitting some unrelated ACPI errors. I boot signed UKI images and my impression is that the kernel .efi is somewhat small and may be lacking the initramfs. I also noticed that systemd was updated from 254.6 to 255 and the Arch UKI documentation mentions unify as the new image generation mechanism.

cmdline does not contain "quiet", but I still don't get anything meaningful logged. I think, the kernel panics, though, als Ctrl+Alt+Del is ineffective and I need to power off the laptop by long-pressing the power button.

Downgrading the kernel did not help.

/etc/kernel/install.conf contains "layout=uki".

Did the handling of this recently change? How can I make sure that initrd + firmware ends up in the UKI?

Sorry for being somewhat unspecific. My daily driver is currently non-functional, which somewhat limits my efficiency at analyzing the issue.

Thanks!

Edit: booting happens using systemd-boot.

Re: System unbootable after upgrade

I have been able to work around the issue by adding the line "uki_generator=ukify" to /etc/kernel/install.conf
