ah, I seem to have found the change in -32 against -31 that causes the trouble.

Commenting out the change make -32 Lockdep kernel boot.

Tony, please let me know whether you can reproduce..

kernel/lockdep.c
static int save_trace(struct stack_trace *trace)
{
trace->nr_entries = 0;
trace->max_entries = MAX_STACK_TRACE_ENTRIES - nr_stack_trace_entries;
trace->entries = stack_trace + nr_stack_trace_entries;

trace->skip = 3;

save_stack_trace(trace);
#if 0

/*
* Some daft arches put -1 at the end to indicate its a full trace.
*
* <rant> this is buggy anyway, since it takes a whole extra entry so a
* complete trace that maxes out the entries provided will be reported
* as incomplete, friggin useless </rant>
*/
if (trace->entries[trace->nr_entries-1] == ULONG_MAX)
trace->nr_entries--;
#endif
