    Soeren said it no longer happens to him in http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/4/9/53
    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.
