    I'm really confused by this one. It looks to me like the initcalls got
    all out of whack in their ordering. There's no way in hell that the
    populate_rootfs() call should be happening right next to cpu
    initialization:

    If you can send me your vmlinux (not vmlinuz), I'll see how the
    initcalls are laid out in it. What distro and compiler are you on?
