Ok, I've been following up on this failure on elm3b132/3. I moved
forward to v2.6.22-rc2-mm1 and that also fails. I ran a bisection on
the git-newsetup patch in as in -mm and basically it came down to the
first patch, ie. any and all of this tree stops the boot.
I just tried reproducing git-newsetup boot failures with the latest
version of your tree (369f16fdd423d79640c4390915e6ab71189cb497) and that
Fails in this context is hard boot failure after loading the kernel and
before anything is printed. I also added a printf to the top of main()
in boot/main.c and it doesn't come out, not that I really know if that
means it got there or not.
Any suggestions how to debug this puppy?
