Thanks, I'll have a poke, see what, if anything, is different from the
kernels I ran.

Hmm, I tought you said the system remained semi usable, just that reboot
stopped working thereafter and it needed a power cycle.

Ah, you're using a GUI!

Stop doing that ;-)

See if you can use the VGA console; not a FB console or a DRM console,
but the real ancient, proper text mode, VGA console.

Now, don't ask me how to do that, because I don't know, I've been
running on pure serial console output for the past 10 years or so, heck
I don't even have systemd.

And you might have to do something like: dmesg -n8, to get the console
to print the kernel messages or something.
