The squashfs image is stored inside the ISO9660 container as
"sidux/sidux.686", it is bootable and the installed kernel (2.6.29-rc7-git3
+ aufs2, it's required for the live system, but I have checked that it is
also reproducable with plain linux-2.6.git and without any patches, outside
of a live environment) exposes this problem.

Sources for all software installed inside the squashfs image is available

The (Debian-) packaged kernel source as:
dget [67 MB]
and as plain tarball with all patches pre-applied: [51 MB]

which consists of the following sources/ patches: [64 MB] [12 MB] [60 KB]

and required for the live CD, but reproducable without these: [4 KB] [4 KB] [4 KB] [12 KB] [632 KB]

used Kernel config: [96 KB]

Thank you a lot for your efforts, I'm now going to test Geert
Uytterhoeven's proposed patch and will report back.
