Just to be certain I followed these exact steps, except of course that I
used my own config instead of crab-domU.cfg, including pulling a completely
new clone. It builds and boots just fine, although it won't run with
memory=10 anymore. It now only works from memory=12 up. If you want I can
send you the built kernel in a private mail.

I don't use cow, so I'm not sure, but this line looks very strange to me.
