I'm seeing a regression in next-20140116 on my system, and "git bisect"
points at this patch. I noticed the fix patch "sched: Fix up scheduler
syscall LTP fails", but applying that doesn't solve the problem.

The symptoms are that when the system boots, I see the login prompt over
the serial port OK, but after I've entered my user/password, the login
process simply hangs. CTRL-C drops me back to the login prompt.

Do you have any hints how I should debug this?
