    You have to love this X radeon driver ... you can't fix one bug without
    breaking something else, it's one of the worst piece of crap I've ever
    seen...

    What would be useful now is the X version and maybe trying a little hack
    in the X driver. Do you have ways to rebuild the X driver at all ?

    The problem is, that patch actually fixes some users... Ah, also, could
    you maybe add some printk's around the code that is modified by that
    patch and try to catch the value it tries to use before the lockup ?

    That is, print the values of:

    dev_priv->fb_location

    and

    RADEON_READ(RADEON_CONFIG_APER_SIZE)

    Thanks,
    Ben.
