next-20170125 hangs on aarch64

Hi all,

I pulled next-20170125 kernel, and found it hanged on boot. The exact reason is
panic on dereferencing of the 0xffffffc8 address, which is most probably the
attempt to dereference the ENOSYS error code as the address. next-20170124 works
fine, at least it boots.

Does anyone have details on that?
