Thought about CCing Linus to show him that 2.6.39-rcX isn't as "calm"
to everyone, but then chose to CC Maciej instead: Would you be so kind and
add this to your regression list? Thanks!

Since commit 38f1cff

    Subject: [PATCH] Merge commit '5359533801e3dd3abca5b7d3d985b0b33fd9fe8b' into dr

    This commit changed an internal radeon structure, that meant a new driver
    in -next had to be fixed up, merge in the commit and fix up the driver.

    Also fixes a trivial nouveau merge.


booting my atom/NM10/ION2 system crashes hard during boot, right after
blanking the screen, and before the initramfs gets loaded. I just
re-checked: both parent commits ( 5359533 and 4819d2e ) do indeed work
just fine, but the merge commit ( 38f1cff ) fails, same as tip ( 85f2e68 ).

My previous reports (Apr 03, Apr 07) seem to have gotten lost (or ignored,
or both).
