    Tricky - I have nothing to connect to the serial port.

    Diffing the iomaps thus obtained for
    and 2.6.13-rc6 produce this:

    rc6 has a somewhat smaller kernel, and a viapro-smbus.

    The logs also got further, with the synchronous mount:

    The radeon log ended like this:
    [31] -1 0 0x00009000 - 0x000090ff (0x100) IX[B]
    [32] -1 0 0x00009800 - 0x000098ff (0x100) IX[B](B)

    (II) RADEON(0): initializing int10
    (**) RADEON(0): Option "InitPrimary" "on"

    It stopped here, while it normally goes on with:
    (II) Truncating PCI BIOS Length to 53248
    (--) RADEON(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon 9200SE 5964 (AGP)" (ChipID = 0x5964)

    (--) RADEON(0): VideoRAM: 131072 kByte (64 bit DDR SDRAM)
    (II) RADEON(0): PCI card detected
    (II) Loading sub module "ddc"

    Seems like it died trying to perform int10 initialization?

    The matrox log stopped inside a listing of resource ranges after preInit:
    [29] -1 0 0x0000ac00 - 0x0000ac0f (0x10) IX[B]
    [30] -1 0 0x0000a800 - 0x0000a803 (0x4) IX[B]
    [31] -1 0 0x0000a400 - 0x0000a407 (0x8) IX[B]
    [32] -1 0 0x0000a000 - 0x0000a003 (0x4) IX[B]
    [33] -1 0 0x00009c00 - 0x00009c07 (0x8) IX[B]
    [34] -1 0 0x00009400 - 0x000094ff (0x100) IX[B]
    [35] -1 0 0x00009000 - 0x000090ff (0x100) IX[B]
    [36] 0 0 0x000003b0 - 0x000003bb (0xc) IS[B]

    Normally, this continues with:
    [37] 0 0 0x000003c0 - 0x000003df (0x20) IS[B](OprU)
    (==) MGA(0): Write-combining range (0xf0000000,0x2000000)

    (--) MGA(0): 16 DWORD fifo

    (II) MGA(0): [drm] bpp: 16 depth: 16
    (II) MGA(0): [drm] Sarea 2200+664: 2864
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is 7, (OK)

    I guess the radeon hung the machine, and the matrox xserver simply wasn't
    scheduled after that.

    The lockup wasn't total - the numlock LED responded to the numlock key
    (and similar for capslock) until I did the sysrq+B. There seemed to be
    no reaction, other than no more LED responses.
    This kernel doesn't have ACPI so it can't turn the machine off
    when doing a normal shutdown, but it is usually capable rebooting.
    The console was black of course, no dumps of any kind.

    I can try running the radeon xserver only, as the vga console is on the matrox
