I had exactly the same problem (about the same HW).

So I have rebuilt the basic-kernel and later on got 2.0.25, which now
produces a warning with the "ldconfig" in the boot-sequence, saying
that "/usr/lib" cannot be unlinked. Attempts to do ldconfig manually
cause this warning with some "" and the like.
