    bisection came up with:

    # good: [8bfd9710] Merge branch 'x86/xsave'
    # bad: [06e44f6a] IO resources: fix/remove printk
    # good: [282a5f84] Merge branch 'irq/sparseirq'
    # bad: [a0854a46] x86: make 32bit support show_msr like 64 bit
    # good: [5031088d] x86: delay early cpu initialization until cpuid is
    # good: [9d31d35b] x86: order functions in cpu/common.c and cpu/commo
    # bad: [10a434fc] x86: remove cpu_vendor_dev

    | 10a434fcb23a57c385177a0086955fae01003f64 is first bad commit

    | x86: remove cpu_vendor_dev

    and the thing is, 10a434fc is way too big:

    | 15 files changed, 106 insertions(+), 106 deletions(-)

    and it's not obvious at first (neither at second) sight what the problem
    is. You really need to start doing much smaller patches for such
    critical/hard-to-debug code areas.
