Ok, here's more info. It DOES seem to be a regression. I spent half a day
yesterday trying to trace this down, with no success. Multiple bisect
attempts ended up with non-bootable kernels on the very first iteration.
Today I just wanted to post all possible logs / configs to Bugzilla and -
it "suddenly" worked... And the change that made it work was - I disabled
CONFIG_FB_PM2 in the kernel...
So, I think, this shall be qualified as a regression, although, I have no
idea where. pm2fb.c itself hasn't (effectively for little endian) changed
since 2.6.24. To make it visual
v2.6.24 works works
v2.6.25 works fails
