Hi, Sebastian!

As commit 422580c3cea7 hasn't added any code, which is executed
during the boot process, I could imagine only two options:
1) Added code/data occasionally broke some alignment/size contraints.
2) There is another instable bug, which compromised bisect results.

Unfortunately, I can't help you with reproducing, because I haven't
necessary hardware.

Can you, please, try some older known to be good revision with
the 422580c3cea7 patch applied?

Roman
