Comment(by werner):

 Thanks ! I've been able to reproduce it now. I've disabled module loading
 in my kernel to prevent contamination from the OE build. The last program
 invocations I see are
 /usr/sbin/exquisite-write -wait
 followed by one or two invocations of /sbin/hotplug
 Then the system hangs, apparently with trashed page tables :-(

 Could exquisite-write -wait unleash some mayhem ? If I suppress execution
 of exquisite-write, the system boots normally.
