That in itself is frankly more of a concern to me. Probably recent
irq-handling changes, or some other platform change, has broken boot on some
machines. If we don't get reports and testing help with that, it'll end up
broken in the next major stable release too, which we really don't want.

Meanwhile, can you at least boot with 3.4? At least we still maintain that.
And do a debug build (debug=y make ...) so that the backtraces from the 'd'
debug key are more meaningful.
