I ran into the same problem but I could get a root prompt.  I found that
a number of /etc/init.d/scripts and some of the portage support scripts
contained lines like this:

         local -a umods=()

or something like that.  It seems the new 3.1 bash does not like the
=() syntax.  I just removed the =() from the ones I found causing reboot
problems, at least until I got my network link back.  Then I masked out
the new version and reverted to the previous version.
