Hmm.  These are the same symptoms as Debian bug report number 523942.
Does that mean that stock kernel image linux-image-2.6.26-2-s390
version 2.6.26-19 will work for me?  I've been continuing to build a
custom kernel with make-kpkg every time there's an update to the kernel
as my only circumvention.  Don't ask me why the version created by
make-kpkg works but the stock kernel image doesn't work, but that's how
I've been circumventing the problem.  I'd really like to get back to
a stock kernel if I can.
