The changes to the 3 files there look to be independent, so can you
narrow this down further by applying the patch to only a single file?
Of those three only ACPI looks like it could affect ZFS or disks, so
this will be the patch to try first:

If you can get a verbose boot log from the machine that would be
helpful, but you'd need a serial console to capture that.
