REF: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/725293 (thread start)

I regret to report that:

- Upgraded to kernel 2.6.26-1-amd64 (Debian/unstable 2.6.26-3)

$ grep -Ei 'iommu|agp' /boot/config-2.6.26-1-amd64
CONFIG_GART_IOMMU=y
CONFIG_CALGARY_IOMMU=y
CONFIG_CALGARY_IOMMU_ENABLED_BY_DEFAULT=y
CONFIG_IOMMU_HELPER=y
CONFIG_AGP=y
CONFIG_AGP_AMD64=y
CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=m
CONFIG_AGP_SIS=m
CONFIG_AGP_VIA=m
# CONFIG_IOMMU_DEBUG is not set

- Rebooted without 'iommu' parameter. dmesg:

- The syslog after boot reads:

If there is anything I can do, please let me know. This must be a kernel
issue somewhere.

My BE-2400 processor still continues to freeze after few days.
