Not the same config, and it's very spurious - i.e. a slightly different -tip version
with the same config will boot fine. (this suggests some race)

Something very much not good with the fundamental mechanics of jump labels i'm
afraid. It might be corrupting some memory here, or have some window of
vulnerability in which an IRQ hits (or so) we will crash.

Thanks,

Ingo
