Curious if anyone else applied todays updates to Thunderbolt and are now frozen at the gray boot screen with the apple logo and swirly circle?


I'm on an early 2011 MBP running Lion with all the latest patches/software except for the Thunderbolt update.  The laptop has an SSD with whole disk encryption enabled. 


I installed the patch,  came back a few minutes later, there was an error saying it wasn't able to apply it..    and the machine was frozen at that point, nothin else to do.  I hard rebooted, and it's in thise frozen state since.

Safe boot does not boot.

Clearing PRAM does not help.


Booting safe with verbose (shift-command-v after apple boot tone) ends with:


AppleThunderboltNHI::enablePower - turn power off, status = 0x0, result_value = 0x0


Have let it sit for 45 minutes and no change in the logs. 


There is a mention a few lines prior about IOKit framework not loading due to "image not found", but unclear if that's related at all.     3 lines prior Thunderbolt mention it also says "The System bootstrapper has crashed: Trace/BPT trap: 5
