I do need to know whether it was the vmlinux or the zImage.pseries
that you were loading with yaboot. That commit you identified affects
the contents of an ELF note in the zImage.pseries that firmware looks
at, as well as a structure in the kernel itself that gets passed as an
argument to a call to firmware. If you were loading a vmlinux with
yaboot when you saw the corruption occur then that narrows things down
a bit.
