This patch hit next-20150519 in the form of commit 27a4c827c34a
(fbcon: use the cursor blink interval provided by vt) and has caused
boot failure on a handful of ARM platforms when booting a MMC root
filesystem. This error was spotted by the bot on
exynos5800-peach-pi[1] and Thierry and Daniel (Cc'd) have seen it on
some tegra platforms too.

Thierry spotted this commit as a potential cause, and both Daniel and
I have reverted and boot tested on exynos5 and tegra respectively and
the boot panics disappear.
