    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.
