Sorry for the delay. I was finally able to perform a bisect on this. It
turns out the patch that causes this is
x86_64-mm-re-positioning-the-bss-segment.patch, which seems like a
strange candidate, but sure enough I can boot to login: right up until
that patch is applied.

P.S. I had to comment usb-hubc-build-fix.patch out of the series file
because it would not apply cleanly and caused quilt (0.45) to simply
abort its 'push' operation.
