OK, great.

The good news is that I can indeed confirm that, I somehow failed to
notice that last night. I simply put the machine to build kernels and
walked off, only to come back 30 minutes or so later to see it was still
happily chugging along.

Further good news is that by disabling
__ARCH_WANT_INTERRUPTS_ON_CTXSW again it goes away, so it must be
something funny with the relatively little code under that directive.

The bad news is of course that I've got a little more head-scratching to
do, will keep you informed.
