Symptom: DPMS is engaged, monitors off. Pressing keys has no effect.

System is alive. ssh'ing in, trying xdpyinfo (or any X command) on :0.0 results
in a hung client. Problem appeared between 4.9.34 and 4.12.12, sorry I can't
narrow it down further. It happens within a few hours of boot, and has never
hung while I'm actually doing something - only when I leave the keyboard and
come back to DPMS-blanked system.

Xorg server 1.19.5; hang has never happened on 4.9.34. It has happened twice in
the last 24 hours on 4.14.8.

strace on the X process yields rapid infinite loop of:

    ioctl(12, DRM_IOCTL_NOUVEAU_GEM_CPU_PREP, 0x7ffee9b26240) = ? ERESTARTSYS
(To be restarted if SA_RESTART is set)
    --- SIGALRM {si_signo=SIGALRM, si_code=SI_KERNEL} ---

There is absolutely nothing in /var/log/messages.

lspci reports the card as: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA
Corporation G96 [GeForce 9500 GT] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
