Will try and report shortly.
It seems to work just fine without SMP.
Just in case it might matter:

I was able to reproduce the hang with your originally posted config.

It only triggers when CONFIG_PROM_CONSOLE is enabled, I keep telling
people to turn it off.  Nobody should be using it, it either breaks
things or it slows the console down considerably.

That's it, I'm completely removing that driver from the tree this
merge window, so you guys can't mess it up any more even if you want
to :-)

Very good news.
I had a lot of trouble because of this.
I had to disable it for initcall_debug to work, but then, any kernel patched or not was working.
I thought I messed up between patches and built kernels.
I realize now that I had the explanation under my nose.
