Ah, scratch that. Digging a bit deeper, it becomes obvious that the
initramfs/initrd code is freeing its own memory using the same
function in the end (free_init_pages()) as free_initmem(), so they'll
in fact just print the same message. That doesn't change the fact of
the hang, however...

My config can be found at:

the programmer was not looking is intellectually dishonest as it
disguises that the error is the programmer's own creation."
