Excellent. I wonder if this was fixed by some patch in the area of
v2.6.35-rc2~7^2 (module: fix bne2 "gave up waiting for init of module
libcrc32c", 2010-06-05). If you have a chance to try
2.6.34-1~experimental.2 and 2.6.35~rc4-1~experimental.1 from
http://snapshot.debian.org to check that, that would be very useful.
Just curious: did the fix stick? Did you get a chance to try any
older versions to narrow down the range to search for the fix?
I'm curious mostly because it would allow us to fix this in squeeze.
If it would be more convenient to have a patch against squeeze to test
instead[*], let me know and I'll see what I can find.

Owing to other pressures the next step for me is to set up a new box
just to debug this issue. I'll get to this by the end of the day Friday.
