I got netconsole to work, but it stops logging. Below are the last few
lines of output:

Even when I got the screen to "fade" out, I never got anything more. I
guess it doesn't hang the kernel. It just must be a different timing
problem related to usplash/xorg which is exposed by the scheduler timing
changes since around that one commit that I found by git bisect. It does
seem to be a very weird problem.

Any ideas on how to help the xorg intel driver developers pinpoint the
problem?
