    Yes, I think that xorg/xorg i915 driver/libdrm/GEM/whatever are the
    biggest suspect currently, according to the data that has been gathered so

    Still, what confuses me a little bit -- the EEPROM of the card is set to
    all 0xff, once the corruption happens. Isn't that a quite a coincidence,
    that bytes representing "nothing" in this context are used?

    If being set to 0 (it's so easy to call memset(0) on a bogus pointer,
    there are usually lots of them in the code) or to random garbage, it would
    seem to be much more understandable, than 0xff.
