One of my test systems didn't boot with latest git-x86.
I bisected it down to f1321f875910172bcc3e1f302fe145a9e4d3bdf7

With later patches the fault seemed to happen even earlier before
other initialization messages.

    x86: Change size of node ids from u8 to u16 fixup
    
    Change the size of node ids for X86_64 from 8 bits to 16 bits
    to accomodate more than 256 nodes.
    
    Introduce a "numanode_t" type for x86-generic usage.

i've reverted that patch for now, but we need to figure this crash out - 
the patch looks a trivial extension so it's probably some bad assumption 
elsewhere, which we want to fix.

I'm testing the new version of the patch using:


git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/x86/linux-2.6-x86.git mm


The straight mm version doesn't like your .config file.
