With the non-irq tables boot, I did. Linux found IRQ4, which was
statically set to the serial port, and promptly disabled it. I can't be
sure if booting stopped at that point, or if it just killed my serial
port for the fun of it. Booting gets further (but still fails) if I
don't use irqpoll, but I didn't have the patience to wait half an hour
for another capture file.

With the irq tables, I can't get that far, I'm not sure what's going on
with that at all. I think it might be because there are more entires in
irq_tables.c than are defined by IRQ_SLOT_COUNT, but I really don't know
a whole heck of a lot about such things.

Hmm, it can't find the pnputils package. I'll just upgrade to debian
testing, this CF needs a fresh install anyways.
