    Did some further testing, this time passing a loglevel= so I'd see the output,
    and sysrq-T showed that both modprobe issues were due to an even earlier
    modprobe that went south. Looking like a bad merge of a local patch caused
    some locking to get corrupted (always a bad sign when atomic_dec_and_test
    throws an "atomic counter underflow" message on a refcount). It's now unclear
    why backing out the agp-updates patch allowed modprobe to succeed - it
    *shouldn't* have made a difference. Oddness.
