RAM checked out fine.

The problems with GENERIC build, the BGE 'zone' issue, and half a dozen
other similar uninitialized variable errors were all caused by this:

options         RESTARTABLE_PANICS

Turning it off made it all build just fine on multiple machines. Always
something right in front of your face isn't it?

Now my question is with the RESTARTABLE_PANICS turned off are my machines
going to hang at kernel panics? What is the deal with that? Still waiting
for an answer on that one.
