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.
