I forgot to tell you what environment I'm in; debian in a pure 64-bit
environment. I've got a chroot at /mnt/store/x86 where I compile kernels
for x86 boxes.

.config snippet:
CONFIG_BINFMT_ELF=y
CONFIG_BINFMT_MISC=y
CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION=y
CONFIG_IA32_AOUT=y
CONFIG_COMPAT=y
CONFIG_SYSVIPC_COMPAT=y
CONFIG_UID16=y


Anyway, found the trouble-maker. Reverting below patch fixes issues.
