    cc503c1b "x86: PIE executable randomization" doesn't boot on my Ubuntu
    Feisty Fawn Intel Core2 system.

    I get numerous segfaults before getting a (initramfs) busybox shell. A
    similar bug was reported much earlier:

    Sadly, reverting this (or all of the PIE patches) results in a lot of
    conflicts now with git-revert too failing, mainly in
    arch/x86/mm/mmap_64.c.
