    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).

    I mailed the author of the patch, including the git Id
    of that patch... but he didn't reply... and I didn't keep the
    mail :/ So, I am afraid I can't give much details.

    I'd still like to have it sorted out. If you give me the
    green light (in the sense that you are willing to help
    a kernel-newbie when needed) then I'll have another
    attempt at getting more information.

    PS I believe it was you who committed the patch.
