Possibly.  Either that or you got hit with the changes to the
2.6.x config option changes.  I have booted a 2.6 kernel.  So unless
it is a very recent change things should still work.

Have you tried memtest86?  I am quite curious to if your memory
is working solidly.  With all of your bootloaders going haywire
I really don't know what to think.

This might be a glitch in 5.3.recent as well.  I have not looked
in detail at what is going on there.  I can't think of anything
that would cause a failure like that.
