Hi Dave, I have an amd64 box for which every kernel
after 2.6.18 hangs during boot, so I have no dmesg :(

I used git bisect to find out where the problem patch is,
and assuming bisect works (imho it jumped between versions
very weirdly: closing in on the last 6 revisions, it
jumped from 2.6.18 to 2.6.18-rc2 to 2.6.18-rc6), the problem
is a patch in intel-agp.c, where support for the intel 965G
is added (which I have).

How do you have a 965G in an amd64 box? does not compute.
