[Intel-gfx] garbled X screen (kernel log said GPU HUNG!)

I have been using the anholt/drm-intel kernel from GIT.  If I try to
upgrade to kernel 2.6.32-rc4 I get a garbled screen when the X server
starts but the problem has existed for 2+ weeks so I don't think it
began with this kernel version.  The kernel log reports "GPU Hung".  If
I revert back to 2.6.31-rc9 the there's no problem.  All of my X
drivers/tools/libraries are from freedesktop GIT and built yesterday.
It's a ThinkPad T61.
