That’s too bad.

Please do try it. Also (I know I’m pushing my luck here) if you still
have the old libc package around, could you try with that? It would
be nice to understand what went wrong here, so we can avoid it
The only possibly relevant kernel change I could find was commit
5a3a29f (ARM: 5691/1: fix cache aliasing issues between kmap() and
kmap_atomic() with highmem, commit 7929eb9 upstream) from 188.8.131.52.
So though I also have my doubts, we _could_ be lucky.
