The linux.c32 module doesn't boot my kernel, while pxelinux itself

  kernel vmlinuz-2.6.23
  append initrd=initrd.img-2.6.23 root=/dev/mapper/root

works, while

  kernel linux.c32
  append vmlinuz-2.6.23 initrd=initrd.img-2.6.23 root=/dev/mapper/root

does not: it stays sitting after loading the initrd without any
output.  Version 3.50-pre2 worked, current git does not work.

Unless there's a known problem, I'll bisect as I find the time...
