Soeren said it no longer happens to him in
but unfortunately it still happens with me using -rc9. So I kidnapped his
bugzilla report :-)

In the bugzilla entry I said earlier today that "hpet=disable" apparently
makes the problem go away (42 boots OK so far, whereas without this
boot option it hangs ~90% using vga=6 and ~10% using vga=0x0364)

I tried to bisect it, but sometimes in pre 2.6.25-rc1 kernels it takes
30 boots before the first hang to occur. So bisection is not reliable...

If someone proposes a patch I will be glad to test it!

PS: The similar bug in buzilla 10377 also appears to be "fixed"
by using hpet=disable, see comment #17 in that bug.
