This is the answer that I expected, thanks.

After a quick peek in your kernel source, I think you should be able to get recovery to boot on stock kernel. However you may need to align fb to correct 4096 byte boundary otherwise recovery graphics will be jittery.

Just tried to install and then boot into CWM, it shows a pink LED at the Sony logo. Pressing either of the volume buttons makes the phone hang and then reboot. I will report with philZ recovery once my phone rebooots.

EDIT: philZ recovery produces the same result.

EDIT 2: All recoveries produce the same result on my device.
My Devices:
My Phone: Sony Xperia M C1905 | ROM: Modified Stock | Base Firmware/Build Number: 15.4.A.0.23 | Android Version: 4.3 | Kernel: Stock (Permanently Locked Bootloader) | Network: GiffGaff
My Tablet: Google Nexus 7 (2012) | ROM: CM11 | Base Firmware/Build Number: 11-20140527-NIGHTLY-grouper | Android Version: 4.4.4 | Kernel: CM11 | Network: N/A
