v4.13-rc1 + 19d39a3810e was also broken for me. I just disabled
some unused bits in my .config and now the kernel boots with
(with 422580c3cea7 that is). Maybe I hit some maximum image size
limit for Droid 4?

Anyways it looks like 422580c3cea7 is not the actual problem
and merely reveals some other problem.
