Hi Ard, et. al.,

I'm trying out tip/master and I find that my system panics early during boot. Reverting
this patch seems to resolve the issue. Please see the trace below.

I've started debugging, but I'm not familiar with this code. Please let me know if you
have any ideas or if there's anything you'd like me to try.

Thanks,
Yazen
