Can you login into your tty or how do you get the logs?
Did you try another 4.8 kernel like the ARCH one?

I'm having the same problem except that I don't use Plymouth. I do have the boot logo turned on, which should be the very first thing the kernel does, but the whole screen is white and stays white and I get nothing at all on the screen. I'm pretty sure it was working with 4.7.

The journal of a booting kernel is here :

please see this conversation on twitter, about the current status on the issue:

try to boot with the arch kernel and poste your output of:
journalctl -b-1 -k

The update to linux-pf-4.8.x makes my laptop unbootable. After selecting the kernel in Grub, the boot stops right after loading Plymouth so I can't even reach a tty from there. Tried several reboots and they all end up the same. Going back to linux-pf-4.7.x solves the issue; I can boot fine using that one.
I'm using a Dell Chromebook 13 with Arch Linux fully updated and have had no issues with any of the software or hardware except that the aforementioned 4.8.x pf-kernel prevents me from booting while 4.7.x pf works fine.

did you build a 32bit kernel? only x86_64 has stack validation I changed that objtool is only installed when validation is enabled.

walkindude commented on 2016-10-10 11:35

same for me. solved by setting CONFIG_STACK_VALIDATION=y in config:

On my box, objtool isn't built when the PKGBUILD wants to install the binary. Inserting a "( cd tools/objtool && make )" before "cp -a tools/objtool/objtool ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/tools/objtool/" makes it not fail. No idea if it's a good thing to do, though.
