This really is an excellent opportunity for git-bisect, as you are
trivially and immediately able to reproduce the problem. There are not
that many patches between rc2 and rc3, so it would require only a few
reboots to identify offending patch, and git-bisect is really trivial to
use - see the manpage for the example on the process of bisecting.
