According to the GCI 2012 task ( investigations the tcpdump breakage occured between hrev42711 and hrev43638.

Hm... tcpdump bombs standard output with packets info in hrev43045 but keep silence in hrev43046. I wonder, how hrev43046 changes can affect the tcpdump at all? :-|

The kernel is currently compiled with PARANOID_KERNEL_FREE by default, so the changes in hrev43046 actually affect the kernel. Apparently, the network stack does not like memory initialized with 0xcc somewhere affecting tcpdump.

yep, compiling with KERNEL_DEBUG_LEVEL 0 "fixes" this issue and tcpdump works in such build.
