The problem reappeared, despite the patch.

As I don't want to remove and reinsert the second memory module too
often (I have to remove too many cables for that), I have settled on
using i386 for now. I/O on the USB stick is extremely slow, but after
the OS and some packages are installed, it should be a fairly constant
filesystem, so that's okay. And the unusable half gigabyte of memory
is much better than an unstable system.

I can test patched amd64 kernels any time, if somebody works on this issue.

And for the record: ESXi is fairly useless on this machine. It
installs like a charm on a USB stick, but using local SATA drives for
VMFS volumes is unbearable slow. This seems to be a known issue, which
VMware probably has no intention to solve (being a subsidiary of EMC).
