No, I don't. I'm just that ignorant I guess, and not too attentive to the
original description of the problem. My impression was: after the kernel
was loaded, when services were getting started, that is when kernel panic
had happened. I'm many [bad] things but not a wishful blamer of some piece
of architecture I do not like much (compared to different few doing the
same I saw in my life some of them I'm still using).

But thanks for your note, it's helpful for me (no sarcasm, really).
