It seems we are in a fairly ugly "fix one board, it breaks another" iterations, right?

(BTW, if you apply patch to fix this bug, could you Cc me? I have strange feeling
that it will break my setup... Actually, it probably makes sense to Cc all the people
who reported problems with ring initialization...

What patch caused the boot time regression you are talking about? We need to get
list of commits involved in this, and revert the original one...

Jiri Kosina may have the same problem, right?
