Hi Folks

Using the lastest Linus T. mainline it is no longer possible to boot a

The kernel boots OK and issues UART messages, but the system gets stuck

Configuration is multi_v7_defconfig+CGROUPS+AUTOFS4_FS+IPV6 (although
the deviations from multi_v7_defconfig should make little difference).

An automated bisect identified the first broken version as:

insufficient to get things working when merged back to head.

Feel free to ask for any help in resolving the problem.
