Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 470383
5.2.z kernels starting with 92.1.14 fail to boot on Intel Broadwater test system.

Description of problem:
This is a regression from the 92.1.13 kernel. Starting with the 92.1.14 kernel I am getting a boot failure with the vanilla kernel. All 5.3 kernels boot sucessfully on this system (latest tried is -121)
All 5.2.z kernels starting with -92.1.14 fail in booting on my broadwater test
system. I have not seen this on any production level systems, but we might want
to investigate and possibly respin.
just after the Freeing unused kernel memory messages, but before the boot
process is handed off to init (the part that displays "Welcome to Red Hat
Enterprise Linux") I get 5 lines of:
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-464c
At that point, the system appears to hard-lock and is unusable, the screen blanks after a few minutes but system is otherwise dead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
92.1.14 or newer on a 5.2 base.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install 5.2 for i386 on Intel Broadwater system
2.Install the -92.1.14 kernel (or newer)
3.Watch as system hangs just when boot process is handed over to init.
hard hang during boot
