No, nor does this fix my booting problem(s) with 2.6.2-rc2. I'm now
back and running 2.6.1-mm5 without any problems. Is there any further
info I can give, or patches I can apply? I've applied the early
printk patch, the above patch, and I'm at a loss where the problem is.

It hangs at the following spot:

Should I start adding in printks, or would it make sense to go back
through the various 2.6.2-bk# snapshots looking for where the problem

Here's my PCI info, just in case this info helps:
