The following information would help a lot:
* dmesg output from a successful boot.
* Latest checkout date of a kernel that does boot.
* Earliest checkout date of a kernel that doesn't boot.
* If it's not a GENERIC kernel, the kernel
configuration. (Diff against GENERIC is enough.)
SVN revisions are even better than dates if
you have them available. (Most people
don't; that's okay.)
With this, someone can look through the
changes that were made during that period
and possibly come up with a few likely
culprits. Obviously, it's better if you
can narrow it down to a shorter interval
(a week is good, a day is better) by
checking out sources from the half-way
point and trying that.
