Comment (by justin at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Thanks for the tips Alexander.  I added the mentioned kernel config
 options, ran make oldconfig, and built a CD with that kernel.  It failed
 to boot as well.  Pressing SysRq+T showed lots of data, scrolling past the
 screen buffer.  I took pictures with a digital camera and put them on my
 site below (about 1MB total in pictures) as there was way too much text to
 type accurately.  All the pictures are available here:


 The scrolled-up buffer starts at picture screen01 and ends at screen08.
 That final picture is here if that is the only relevant picture:
