if i might interrupt, is the OP saying he can't even *boot* 2.6.34?
i'm running 2.6.34-rc7, built from the git pull of that version. i
should probably take a few minutes and build a newer one now that
2.6.34 is out. even if you still have the aforementioned bug, that
shouldn't be any reason to fail to simply boot.
or am i misunderstanding something?
