I updated to the latest stable-2.6.26 and took the opportunity to try 
with a clean defconfig-2.6.26 (since CONFIG_MTD_NAND_S3C2410_DEBUG has 
now been disabled on it). It hangs on the very first line ("Starting 
kernel..." IIRC). However, the hang didn't happen on qemu; only on the 
real hardware.

Changing both variables back to =0 made it work again.

I haven't tested on 2.6.24.
