Thank you for the fast response!
I did some further tests, and it looks like the Emdebian cross-compiler
miscompiles newer kernels, at least for the configs I tested. Using the
ELDK cross-compiler instead, the kernel boots fine under qemu.
I don't think I'll have time to further debug this issue, but I've cc'ed
email@example.com, in case anyone is interested in tracking this
down. I'll provide .configs + vmlinux files on request.
