Indeed. The kernel crash is triggered by a bad keymap file in
console-data (commented with `!', not `#'). See the list archives and
a long-outstanding bug report of mine with an oops for the kernel.

You had to do that with 3.0 and correct it later. If this hasn't been
corrected in 3.0r1, please bug the console-data maintainer to make
sure it gets into r2. I'm pretty sure it's corrected in testing, but
as far as I remember my revamped UK map isn't in there.
