[Bug 1213795] Re: newer kernels (3.10+) don't boot on MacBook Air 6.1

(note I compiled this kernel myself, this is not the ppa-mainline

  newer kernels (3.10+) don't boot on MacBook Air 6.1

Bug description:
  The current raring kernel boots (with nosmp and libata.force=noncq),
  newer kernels don't boot at all. They hang with ramdisk loading and
  nothing seems to happen. This is difficult to debug, as it happens so
  early in the boot.
