re:627019 39 steadily improving on i865 chipset
After upgrading to 2.6.39-1-686-pae I have fewer boot attempts hanging.
Usually one or two before a successful boot.
It appears that if I downgrade udev one version (udev_169-1)
I get better results (at least with today set of packages).
I've also noticed that the 2 i865 chipset machines are much more
sensitive to booting the 39 kernels than the i915 chipset machine.
The i915 machine was booting 39 consistently with 39-rc6 and beyond,
