    And it really looks like a timing issue. I have bisected down to
    e710d7d5a9cab1041b7a3cf9e655b75d92786857. I had to skip[1] some commits
    due to compile errors [2].
    At first it looked quite promising because I was able to boot after I
    reverted that patch but then I have tried to revert it on top of rc4
    (2f666bcf757cb72549f360ef6da02f03620a48b6) and saw the same problem

    So I do not think that bisecting will help here.
