    Okay, the faulting instruction is the following:

    c0383360: 0f 1f 40 00 nopl 0x0(%eax)

    The Crusoe code morphing software apparently doesn't recognize these
    "long noops", and (presumably) the rest of the hinting NOOP group. gcc
    didn't use to generate them, and Crusoe/Efficeon generally do not
    benefit from code alignment anyway. I suspect the best thing to do is
    to use either a 586 kernel or build a dedicated Crusoe kernel without
    code alignment.
