Do you have an rc script (e.g. rc.serial) which tries to access the serial
ports (e.g. with setserial) before kerneld is loaded?

By any chance, did you try to cat /proc/ioports? There's a known bug in
the serial driver when compiled as a module that can cause
'cat /proc/ioports' to Oops on you. See the patch I posted earlier today
for a solution.
