Did you try building a stripped down kernel for 4.0.1, or -current?  I ask
because I tested your stripped down kernel on -current, and it did not
work ... but the problem was recent changes to tsarm_start.S.  I reverted
those changes, and now your stripped down kernel boots fine.  So if you
are trying -current, do an update and I suspect that you will be fine.
Also, I suspect building that kernel config file from 4.0.1 source tree
will also be fine.
