    I have the same problem, also on Debian sid on amd64. I can report that the
    Debian version 4.2-20070627-1 of gcc works, 4.2-20070707-1 does not.

    Also the hang occurs in udevsettle; if you wait long enough (60 seconds?)
    then udevsettle times out and the boot continues (but doesn't get very far
    with an almost empty /dev).

    For a few more data points, I tried building my kernel with the new compiler
    and s/=m/=y/ on the .config and then disabling modules. This didn't help.
    I have also tried mixing modules and vmlinuz from different gcc versions;
    whether the hang occurs or not depends only on the version used to compile
    the vmlinuz.
