OK, with your patch applied to Linus' latest git tree the machine
continues to boot. Also, with the latest tree, the "machine is stuck after

For this particular problem and patch, feel free to add:

Tested-by: Christian Kujau <>

However, shortly after boot and loggin in to the box remotely, the bux did
not respond any more. I'm not sure if these are related to those SSB/PCIe
changes, but somehow I hope they are - bisecting those would take much
longer, as it's not an "instant" death:


This is what an OCR program made of it:
