For what it's worth, I attempted to boot Will's diff on top of Konrad's
devel/for-linus-5.14 and it did not work; in fact, I got no output on my
monitor period, even with earlyprintk=, and I do not think this machine
has a serial console.

Robin's fix does work, it survived ten reboots with no issues getting to
X and I do not see the KASAN and slub debug messages anymore but I
understand that this is not the preferred solution it seems (although
Konrad did want to know if it works).

I am happy to test any further patches or follow ups as needed, just
keep me on CC.
