head -r356109 on 32-bit powerpc (old PowerMac): Memory modified after free during late-stage of boot, most recently used by bus-sc

The kernel here is from expanding:


(So: not my kernel build.) This is, of course, a debug kernel.
World is my build (via system-clang, not gcc 4.2.1)

Unfortunately, I have no control at that point
so this is all the information available about
the PowerMac's state.

I can report the that following sequences do
boot (so far):

boot -s then exit at the shell prompt
boot -v

(I've also seen a Rock64 Cortex-A53 board with
boot crashes, where boot -v happened to boot,
but only a personal non-debug kernel build was
tried at the time.)

The PowerMac is a 2-processor G4 model, with
FW800. 2 GiBytes of RAM.

Note: Historically I've experimented with
system-clang and more modern gcc builds
for 32-bit powerpc and powerpc64. The above
is from me getting ready to jump over to
the official system-clang context (and ELFv2
for powerpc64).

I wanted to know some of the status of things
that I'd see just before those changes so I'd
have some clue what might be new vs. old when
I switch over.
