Could you post a boot log?

Depending on when the triple fault happens, I might know the solution.
- Directly at AP startup: Easy. The global variables are overwritten by
every AP and can lead to NULL pointer derefs. (Does not apply in
single-core single-processor environments.)
- Same for any point after AP startup.
- Before AP startup or on uniprocessor: Either a stack overrun (bad) or
CAR corruption (worse).
- In theory, jumping to the wrong place could be as damaging.
