There should be a line just above the ones you list here that shows what 
modules are going to be loaded by discover. One of these probably causes 
the segfault.

If agpgart is listed there, it is probably the culprit: it could first 
cause the segfault and then, when hotplug again tries to load it, the 
hang. If not, there may be two problematic modules or it could be the 
interaction between two modules.

You will need to identify which one it is and blacklist that for both 
discover and hotplug. You can do this by using the installer as a rescue 
system [1]. The blacklist files can be found in /target/etc/...

Please let us know if you find the offending module(s).
