'Twas brillig, and Klaus Dittrich at 23/04/09 19:49 did gyre and gimble:
> After installing this driver a switch to a vt-terminal (ctrl-alt F2 for 
> example) does not work.
> No vt-termial / login was available any more nor a return  (ctrl-alt F7) 
> to a graphical desktop.
> I had to use ssh from of another machine to recover of this situation.
> The last driver not showing this behavior is 
> xf86-video-intel-, any later (newer) version
> failed.
> After installing xf86-video-intel- and restarting X switching 
> to vt-termials
> works without rebooting.
> Xserver was xorg-server-1.6.1, kernel 2.6.30-rc3 64bit.

You should try using git bisect (just google it!) to work out what the 
problem commit is. It shouldn't take two long... I predict 5 compiles :)
