Default Bug#497084: linux-image-2.6.26-1-mckinley: Fails to boot on a HP Integrity Virtual Machines 3.0 or 3.5 system

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-mckinley
Version: 2.6.26-3
Severity: normal

linux-image-2.6.25-2-mckinley does boot normally on this platform.

The physical hardware is an HP Integrity rx3600 running HP-UX 11.23
(0712) with Integrity Virtual Machines 3.5
(http://h71028.www7.hp.com/enterprise/cache/262803-0-0-225-121.html).

The virtual machine has 2 virtual CPUs, 2 Gbytes of RAM, a virtual DVD
ROM drive, and a single 32Gbyte virtual disk drive containing the
Debian installation.

The kernel fails to start after the initrd has been loaded by ELILO. Console output is as follows:

[begin console output]
EFI Boot Manager ver 1.10 [14.62] [Build: Mon Oct 1 09:27:26 2007]

Please select a boot option

Debian GNU/Linux
EFI Shell [Built-in]
Boot option maintenance menu


Use ^ and v to change option(s). Use Enter to select an option
Loading.: Debian GNU/Linux
Starting: Debian GNU/Linux
ELILO
Uncompressing Linux... done
Loading file EFIdebianinitrd.img...done
[end console output. No further messages after approximately 5 minutes]

When running on the linux-image-2.6.25-2-mckinley image, lspci
produces the following output:

[begin lspci ouput]
ajohnso2@spielplatz:~$ lspci
00:00.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI (rev 07)
00:01.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI (rev 07)
00:03.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82372FB PIIX5 ISA (rev 01)

07:01.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller
ajohnso2@spielplatz:~$
[end lspci output]

This does not appear to be a simple case of the console not being
properly connected. A linux-image-2.6.25-2-mckinley kernel does boot
OK. If there were simply no console attached, I'd expect this machine
to have a running network in under 2 minutes. Five minutes of pinging
it with linux-image-2.6.26-1-mckinley gets no response and the host
system believes that the VM is still running the EFI, not the Linux
kernel.
