I retested with next-20120912 and my machine boots, so no more
drm-related errors causing boot-failures.

Immediately after pressing any single key at X-login (Ubuntu/precise
IIRC uses lightdm + unity-greeter), my machine produces a
kernel-panic.
I have taken a photo and will send a separate email on this.
Can't say ATM what is the root-cause for it.
But that is what I have seen after my merging of the "clean"
pci.git/next into yesterday's "nine-eleven" release.

Further questions (not issue related):

While doing a simple grepping for new "pcie-cap" patterns (a list at
[1]) came with commit 8c0d3a02c1309eb6112d2e7c8172e8ceb26ecfca ("PCI:
Add accessors for PCI Express Capability") on drivers/gpu/
directory...more simplifications possible (I had only a quick view)?
