Can you try the serial console (`console=ttyS0')? If you're lucky, you will get
some output there before it crashes.

Alternatively, I have a patch to hardbang the serial port in printk(), which I
always use to add debugging printk() when someone breaks the kernel in that
early stage.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
