Could it be a mismatch between kernel version and version of
LKM userland-utils? Something like this happened to me when I
upgraded to RC1 (although given that you're already at RC1, it
might be unrelated): the mismatch resulted in panic/ddb occur-
ring during every boot attempt.
I disabled the modules, did the userland upgrade, reenabled
the modules and the problem went away.
