Hi Peter! Thank you for information! Are you able to try to call that
function on some old kernel (e.g. 3.12 or 3.14) to verify that it is
caused only and only by that function?

I have tried to use my old 3.19.0 kernel that did not have the problem but now it will not boot. The boot screen is left with

Loading Linux linux...
Loading initial ramdisk...

No logs etc.. I am guessing that some grub or ram disk change is giving me the problem. I have just upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 and do not want to downgrade so I am a bit stuck at the moment and doubt that I can do this test.
