That might be too large a range for developers to consider. Can you
test some versions between and (bisection)?

OK, after another day of testing it seems that the problem appears in, because

* linux - custom compiled from source - ok
* linux - custom compiled from source - not ok

On Ben's advice I am trying to locate the commit that causes the problem to appear more precisely using 'git bisect'. However, too many of generated revisions are unbootable so I have to use 'bisect skip' frequently. I started with 4059 revisions to test (roughly 12 steps) and after 15 steps I still have 2902 revisions to test (rougly 12 steps).

Is there any way to speed this process up? I tried to do bisection manually but I do not understand git enough to be able to do this efficiently.

My current bisect log is below.
