hang on laptop mode during boot

I did an update today to whatever is the latest on testing and now my
1998 PowerBook G3 Series (Wallstreet / PDQ) hangs during boot at the
"initializing laptop mode" line.

Actually it hung at the "deactivating laptop mode" line when I powered
it down a few hours ago, but it was a somewhat stressful situation --
I was turning off equipment to try to discover the location of some
smoke. (It turns out the smoke was coming from a flatbed scanner.) So
I had to reset the PowerBook to get it to power off.

NOW I can't boot back into linux at all so I need to figure out how to
do a rescue boot on an oldworld ....

Anyone else having trouble with laptop mode?
