No! The box freezes somewhere after "Freeing unused kernel memory"...

Bisection points to git-x86.patch, though.

I honestly tried fresh #mm from x86 tree -- the one which ends at commit
70be766db1105c0fc9aed8e954d0c343c1eda067 "x86: Add the RDC machine
specific reboot fixup". FWIW, commit "x86: validate against ACPI motherboard
resources" is innocent. After "x86: make stack size configurable" damn thing
wouldn't build and applying fixets from -mm doesn't help at 3AM.

Again, it's late here, I'll recheck today.
