Crash during X startup (intel driver)

I am using the intel graphics driver with G43 graphics.  Occasionally,
when X starts up, the computer completely hangs.  Unfortunately, there
are no messages printed to the console or written to /var/log/messages,
and I have to completely restart the machine.

I'm attaching two Xorg.0.log files, one from a crash, and one from a
normal session.  The log from the system-hanging session stops just
before where the normal log prints, "(II) intel(0): EDID vendor "SAM",
prod id 1087".  Other than that, the two logs are identical other than a
few drm lines.

Is this a known problem, or should I open a bug report?  Is there any
other information I should try to collect?
