I'm having very difficult time imagining how 22b737f4 could have
affected this as the patch is identical transformation of the previous

it really looks like a memory overrun / random corruption thing. Can
you please retry with kmalloc debug stuff turned on?
With latest git (2.6.33-git11) the machine boots fine. So as you
mentioned this could be a memory overrun / random corruption issue.

I will try few more boots with latest / old git snapshots, and will
try to collect debug information on recreation.
