Could you please send your .config? These early boot problems are sometimes 
and Kconfig environment sensitive.

A high level description of your hardware and the distro you are using would 
be useful.

Kirill, I'm curious about this change:

-       /* Calculate address we are running at */
-       call    1f
-1:     popl    %edi
-       subl    $1b, %edi
+       /* Calculate address of paging_enabled() once we are executing in the 
trampoline */
+       leal    paging_enabled - trampoline_32bit_src + 

Here we change the calculation from a "discover where we are executing" method 
a calculation method (which is fundamentally more fragile) - why?
