While I don't have any sound troubleshooting advise for you, I am 
curious if the following commit may have broke something (for you).
My git-fu is non existent, but I am curious if you were to roll back
previous to that commit, if it would change anything.

Also, since it appears relevant to your use, it might indicate where you 
can add some extra debug information to see what's going on.

Mind you, I am a lurker/tinkerer. Doing as I suggest may very well kill
your [cat|dog|fish|child|significant other].

     [prefix] Cope with BOOT_IMAGE= anywhere within command line

     Some bootloaders seem to add "BOOT_IMAGE=..." at the end of the
     command line; some at the start.  Cope with either variation.
