yes, the process that crashes the kernel seems to be plymouthd. any know way
to prevent plymouthd from starting? removing rhgb quiet didn't help. also,
once, i've seen something familiar: /proc/device-tree: can't find root, like
in the good old days, when fedora was unable to figure out which of my three
hard drives is first ... but that's another story.
