  i realize i already posted this to the LKML and CCed it here but,
just to summarize, i have a current "git pull" kernel booting fine,
with the following patch applied:

diff --git a/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_opregion.c b/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_opregion.c
index 64fd644..28adc6d 100644

        if (mboxes & MBOX_SWSCI) {

                opregion->swsci = base + OPREGION_SWSCI_OFFSET;

  feel free to suggest more testing.
