So this is a random bug generator...

git-bisect bad
16574dccd8f62dc1b585325f8a6a0aab10047ed8 is first bad commit
commit 16574dccd8f62dc1b585325f8a6a0aab10047ed8
Author: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org>
Date: Fri Apr 6 01:40:38 2007 +0200

Driver core: make uevent-environment available in uevent-file

This allows sysfs to show the environment variables that are available
if the uevent happens. This lets userspace not have to cache all of
this information as the kernel already knows it.
