Hello Thomas,

In trac tickets #145 and #164 two people seemingly independently
found kernel commit a0a6dd0b221260be1e3da725e6b49797e5fa7429
(DRM commit 6c04185857694b2293046b7ea1d4515404a740c3) to be the 
cause for screen corruptions they see on K8M800 and VN800 chips.

(So, Xavier, it appears you were right in your suspicion that it was 
a kernel change that causes this.  :)

Is there anything in the diff that leaps at you, Thomas?  Or should 
the reporters file a bug against DRM so you can look at it later?

The following two statements seem strange to me:

   (void) *paused_at;

   ptr = ((volatile char *)paused_at - dev_priv->dma_ptr) + ...

What are they supposed to do?
