after adding npci=0x2000 to my boot arguments i was able to see why my hack hangs after [PCI configuration begin]. It panicked (page fault) with the backtrace containing AppleAHCIPort.kext and its dependencies IOAHCIFamily.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext. The adress at which the fault happened was in IOAHCIFamily's space. I tried to replace all three with know good ones from 10.6.8, still page faults.
ASUS Sabertooth X58, Marvell SATA Controller for HDDs, JMicron for DVD (doesn't really work though).
ASUS GTX 480
Core i7 950 @ stock 3.07
10.6.8 works like a charm, needs only FakeSMC!
I wonder what changed in the kernel that makes a working driver crash. I'm going to play around with my BIOS settings some more.

Hello again,turns out this was due to a faulty DSDT patch and happens only in 64bit mode which I never used before. This happens in SL as well, i just never encountered it because of my arch=i386 bootargs. Lion comes without i386 binaries, so I was forced to use x86_64.
