Did this already in QEMU (virt board). 4.9.135-1 works. 4.9.144-1 (next one) is broken. The problem is - 4.9.144-1 introduced large amount of changes, including two Spectre mitigations. My attempts to build a kernel with CONFIG_SPECTRE=n yielded unbootable kernels, which may mean that: a) Spectre mitigations are not related to the problem. b) My kernel-rebuilding skill could use some improvement.
