No, that's aty128fb related (screen corruption when fbdev accel is on).
There's a known workaround; document it (maybe add a big fat warning in
the postinstall) and let upstream handle it (any idea, Ben?)

As I said before - build one standalone kernel, and one with mace as a
module. Long shot: try adding

if (mace_lost_status) mace_restart(dev);

at the end of mace_rxdma_intr() to see if resetting the chip and DMA helps
