Amount of memory of Linux Guest must be greater than 1127MB for succesful boot

I am in a very strange situation which I wouldn't believe if I didn't see it for myself. For some reason I am unable to boot a recent Linux kernel, with the latest Virtual Box unless if I specify ~1127MB of memory. Anything below that doesn't allow me to boot it. I have no clue where I should start to search.

I screen recorded the boot process, and will investigate if I can reproduce it with a vanilla Linux kernel using the same configuration. If so I'll report the issue on as well, if not I'll inform the Gentoo bugtracker.

Kernel: 3.14.1-gentoo (and 3.14.2-gentoo)

Using VMware I can confirm that booting with only 64MB works.

Please could you attach a VBox.log file for a VM session when your guest fails to boot as well as a VBox.log file for a session when your guest successfully boots?

Well, the ideal help would be if you could provide the VM image.
