    I ran into something similar with one of my Ultra-60's but with an
    earlier kernel patch. I ended up backing out the kernel patch and all
    other patches that had it as a prerequisite and then reinstalling
    all of those patches. (I think I even backed out more than one
    revision of the kernel patches). After reinstalling the patches,
    the machine booted with the correct version of the kernel.
