It may be some kind of race condition in the SHR software, that
gets trigged much more often with the faster kernel.

Still, the solution for now is an old kernel, for I need
the phone to work as a phone.

Fixing SHR shouldn't be hard, once the race
condition is found. If one program depend on another, then
start them in sequence instead of simultaneously. Or have
the dependant program issue "sleep 1" and then retry
whenever the other program isn't there.
