You're in luck...
I also get artifacts, though less severe, with .31-rc2 on my Toshiba
Satellite A40 (32-bit kernel) during logout from X.Org. The switch is
clean with .30.

Not sure why you're saying that. I would think VESA fb + X.Org is quite
common and also a very valid use case [1]. How else would you get the
pretty kernel boot logo? ;-)

If I boot .31-rc2 without vga=791 I don't get the artifacts. The artifacts
also do not appear if I boot with 'nopat'. Checked on both systems.

Note that I reported a similar issue once before, also reproducible on
both systems. In that case it was a bug in PAT which was eventually fixed.

Given that 'nopat' helps, you may want to check with Suresh on this one.


[1] I'd even go so far as to feel it should be a standard test case for
video driver developers, given that this is the third time it's shown
regressions :-) For the third case the bug was in the X.Org i830 driver:
