Um, not exactly helpful; you're now reporting a bug at a severity that makes
it a release blocker, at a point where the final kernel for etch r0 is
supposed to already be uploaded and there is limited time to consult
upstream about it. In the future, please report such bugs when you find
them, not when you think it might be convenient for the maintainers...

OOI, does booting with 'nosmp' affect this hang problem for either of you?
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
