For what is worth, I seem to suffer from the very same problem here in a
different setting: trying to run a SUSE kernel-head i586 build of 2.6.24.1,
which oopses reliable during initrd.

This system is in production, thus pretty strong constrainted for experimenting
(more or less possible for a few hours at sunday), but I'm building 2.6.24.3 ATM,
since it contains two patches, which could fit the bill. Sunday is away for
a while, though.

Any more insight is very welcomed.

Pete
