Could you guys test the driver pointed at
(probably with the 2.6.32-20 kernel)

Situation summary:
- the latest intel drivers and the latest kernel kms blacklisting cause hard system freeze to many (most?) i855 owners;
- these changes are, unfortunately, worse than what they want to solve;
- upstream is working on a solution (slower but more stable) for these kind of problem that affects older chipset and is designed to work with KMS;
- a working solution isn't there now.

With these premises, shouldn't these changes be reverted, in particular the kernel blacklist? Up to now i've seen complains only from i855 owners so it can be considered to remove only this chipset, leaving blacklisted the older ones.
If that helps i can ask a friend of mine to make some test with his i845.

P.S.: for the record, at work i've tested another i855 notebook (Acer TM292LCi) that exibits the same hangs reported in this bug. For few week it will be available if we want test new drivers or patched one.
