Now this is interesting... I tried vanilla 3.13.0 with exact Debian's
config, and it fails without the patch (and works with it).

So what else differs from kernels that you say work for you unpatched?
* Debian patches vs vanilla Linus' tree
* build scheme (external kbuild vs make-kpkg)

My exact invocation was:
make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd linux-image linux-headers
in a pristine Linus' 3.13.0 tree from git, with config copied from the
package from experimental.

The linux-kbuild-3.13 is missing, and procuring it myself would require a
long ritual which I've forgotten, so I haven't checked the experimental
package myself.

A tit a day keeps the vet away.
