[stable] Regression in segfault on halt

After updating to last night (using same config from .32.1) I
noticed that "halt" now trips during shutdown and won't power the
machine down any longer. This happens reproducibly on two completely
different machines, so it looks like a generic problem and regression,
since it did not happen in .32.1. Note that "reboot" works as expected -
only "halt" crashes.

Stack dump in two parts (upper/lower half) can be found here:

The topmost line (not captured) said something like "Illegal opcode 00
(CPU #0)".

Let me know if you need anything else. I don't have time for full bisect,
but am willing to try and back out select changesets as long as someone
tells me which ones.. :)
