Yes, the problem is the Exynos DRM driver which has a lot of issues.
It's broken if CONFIG_DRM_EXYNOS_IOMMU is enabled which defaults to
yes after commit 8dcc14f82f06 ("drm/exynos: IOMMU support should not
be selectable by user").
I posted a patch to disable IOMMU support on Exynos to avoid these
boot failures and also mentioned to Kukjin that it should be a fix for
4.0 . But even with IOMMU disabled, the Exynos DRM is broken in
some boards  so we may have to disable that driver until everything
gets sorted out and is stable again.
