if it helps, i booted without quiet and splash to see the actual kernel output when it stops loading, then compared it to a normal boot with a 2.6 kernel. the last lines outputted before it stops are:

and it stops there. on a normal boot, the next lines are:

hope this helps on giving any ideas who's the culprit. this bug is getting over my head. i downloaded a 3.1 linux kernel source and compiled it after careful selection of options, and ended with same bug. then brought the config file of the working 2.6 kernel, and used it as starting point to compile the 3.1 kernel (didnt actually modify anything myself, just ran the config and closed it to let it automatically remove any deprecated options that can ruin the compile), and compiled the kernel, and again, same bug.
me thinks it isnt any missing module, some acpi change is doing this, but i cant be sure.
thanks in advance for any help
