    Actually another user has just reported [1] that his e1000e card got
    screwed up exactly at the point when the installer was probing the X
    configuration. So this really seems a lot like some lethal interaction
    between intel graphics and the network card.

    Dave (Airlie, too many Daves on CC here really), do you by any chance see
    any recent change in kernel intel graphic parts of DRM be causing this
    breakage?
