Of the four machines tested, two failed with a kernel panic.
At the time, I just rebooted to a previous kernel, as a quick fix.

I found some of the issues you list already.

I've run the CR-updates on a few test-machines since they became available
and have had no problem. Weird...

I've tested some more now, and it seems the upgrade went fine on my
Virtualbox Win7-host for the test-guests. No kernel-panic, all seems well.
The ones that failed were all Hyper-V guests.
I need to pick a sacrificial physical computer and see if it's reproducible.

For now, trouble-shooting and testing on Hyper-V as I write this.
