Thank you.

BTW, I noticed that the problem is more visible on a thumb2 kernel
build, i.e. you should get a more reliable hang on boot. On a non-thumb2
kernel the hanging behaviour seems depends on a device / bootloader. I
haven't tried to figure out what exactly makes the difference, perhaps
it should be a memory layout / state.
