Something has changed since the last time I generated a kernel with
this option.

Now I get a NULL-pointer dereference in the kernel, doesn't matter
whether I set the hint or not.

No crash dump is created.

Here some trace copied from the console:

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 0; apic id = 00
fault virtual address = 0x1818
fault code = supervisor write data, page not present
instruction pointer = 0x20:0xffffffff805492ef
[some stack trace]
taskgroup_adjust() at taskgroup_adjust+0x2f; frame 0xffffffff8196c90
mi_startup() at mi_startup+0x118; frame 0xffffffff8196fcb0
