AFAIU 6.8.2 doesn't support DRI on FireGL Mobility T2 yet.

Actually, I just verified that the lock up occures even with dri
completely disabled. Even SysRQ doesn't do anything anymore.
I also tried to start the 6.8.2 radeon driver again, it works like a
charm. After using one session with the 6.8.2 driver, I used the CVS
driver again, and the session froze again.
Somtimes, the machine freezes immedeately (only got a black screen,
machine dead), sometimes I can work a few minutes.
