You must have broken something along the way.  I can't imagine 4.2.4p6
has this problem and no one has noticed it before.  I've done a whole
bunch of patches against 4.2.4p6 and see no reachability register
misses for example.

It might be wise to spend a little time reviewing your changes using
winmerge, windiff, or another tree-diff utility.

Good luck,
