reboot/shutdown hang in 3.8-rc3 due to
71e3d1578c954cf29f1f4db1c8930d3574025eb0 went away in this rc. But I
am still seeing

[ 22.890240] DMAR:[fault reason 06] PTE Read access is not set
[ 22.890268] dmar: DRHD: handling fault status reg 3
[ 22.890272] dmar: DMAR:[DMA Read] Request device [01:00.0] fault
addr 80004000

on ATI radeon VGA. Running bisect and will update.
