hwinfo dump & sys/firmware/efi/efivars content

I can not get to boot into any of the latest openSUSE default-3.14 kernels successfully. The boot loader in use is grub2-x86_64-efi-2.00-39.8.1.
The message 'loading initial ramdisk ...' is shown and then a hw reset occurs,
because the BIOS screen pops up again, ... 

The kernel is installed by use of zypper from a running openSuSE 13.1:
# uname -a
Linux chemxen1 3.11.10-7-default #1 SMP Mon Feb 3 09:41:24 UTC 2014 (750023e)

Henrik, are you able to compile an upstream kernel and install that? The easiest way to track down your issue is to use git bisect to find the offending commit, especially with these kinds of "my machine resets" issues.
Comment 2 Henrik Kuhn 2014-04-10 11:55:21 UTC
Matt, I've never compiled a kernel before. But with some guidance from you and http://kernelnewbies.org/KernelBuild I hope I can manage it. It's something I always wanted to do.

Hi,
While trouble shotting efi issues on 3.14.3 (3.14.2 did work flawlessly)

I came to this change :

http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/mfleming/efi.git/commit/?h=urgent&id=7b2a583afb4ab894f78bc0f8bd136e96b6499a7e

can you please attach your .config file to check if the relocation feature is set...

Regards
