Yes, I just re-checked: Just reverting to -r1.69 makes my bananapro
  boot again and re-reverting to -r1.70 makes it stuck again.

Can you compare kernel sizes with and without the change? I agree with Martin that this code runs much later.

Also, does the problem occur with VERBOSE_INIT_ARM/EARLYCONS defined?

It's the normal GENERIC kernel (le) which boots fine on my cubietruck
  with a sata drive attached.
(BTW: I switched from SUNXI to GENERIC kernel some time ago, because
  the SUNXI kernel no longer worked properly).

How did it stop working?

Are you by chance runnning a big endian GENERIC kernel? No. Markus.
