I saw your E-mail but I just did a bk pull frmo Linus's tree and I can't
even get my kernel to build using gcc-3.3.2. I get a lot of unwind related
errors:

What this intentional?

The AllocatePages() says you are trying to allocate 3377699721561477 4KB pages.
Clearly not something you want. Is the output of readelf -e on vmlinux decent?
