Couly you try to find out the exact revision?
Vladimir, the source that works for is at rev 3586.

It doesn't make any sense since there files modified since Nov 14 are
always compiled as 32-bit
I checked further. When I ran the compiled 64-bit grub-install on an
SD card, the SD booted fine. The same grub-install doesn't work my
I zeroed into this problem and it's repeatable. It's the partition
table + reiserfs. Works fine except when the disk partition contains 2 or more
physical partitions and an extended partitions.

Use fdisk to create the following partitions:

1) create physical partition 1. 10MB
2) create physical partition 2. 10MB
3) create extended partition using the remaining space
4) create logical partition 5 using the remaining space
5) mkreiserfs on partition 5, mount and grub2 on it
6) reboot and it hangs

That's pretty weird since no recent changes to reiserfs or msdos part but I can attempt to recreate. Could you perhaps try to bisect to get exact faulting revision? Your range spans 20 intensive commits. Bisecting it is at most 5 attempts but will simplify the debugging greately.
Works if:
1) Partition 1 removed or
2) use non-reiserfs for partition 5

Here's my partitions ...
