This is not the point.  The point is that you actually want to break
out of it if you are indeed in an infinite loop.  Because if you are
in such a loop, then it is a bug that prevents anybody from logging
in, and it is preferable to fall back to rescue mode (root login
prompt on Mach console) than to keep spinning.
