Hm, I may have misdiagnosed it then. Your symptoms are odd; either its
landing back in userspace in the right place but then stumbles on for a
while before crashing (wrong processor mode?) or the eip is wrong and
its just landing in the wrong place and crashing immediately.
How non-deterministic is it? Does it differ every time, or from boot to
boot, build to build?
