Indeed, that combined with _your bad kernel_ caused me several times to
have to hit the power button, as ALT+CTRL+F1, SysRq... all didn't work.
My disks had to be fscked all over again and fsck even exited with value
1 etc. misery.
Only after downgrading xserver-xorg-video-intel from 2:2.12.0+legacy1-1 to 2:2.11.0-1.
was I able to even get the above error messages, else nothing was even
written to disk.
Then I tried downgrading the kernel. That fixed it. So I now upgraded
So now I can use what I get with a aptitude full-upgrade here on sid, with only forbidding
your bad kernel.
