  4. I get an unbootable system when attempting to boot with 4.17-ck1 patched. Coming out of grub2, I see only, "Loading initial ramdisk ..." and a corresponding freeze.

    1. You could compile in drivers for harddisk-controller, filesystem(s), usb, video, etc. and go without initial ramdisk.

    2. I heard of people running into problems with kernels > 4.16.x while using xz compression. Their problem went away after switching to old gzip.
