Is the machine completely dead with the plain 2.2.1 driver? Can you
ping? ssh? catch the log?

I was kind of expecting that upstream did not fix in 2.2.1 everything we
disabled in 2.1.3-5. Let's bump the severity to prevent 2.2.1 from
entering testing, it's better to keep 2.1.3-5 for now.

I am adding to CC 2 person that may experience the same problem since
2.1.3-4 was broken for them. Joseph and Pascal, can you report back
whether savage 2.2.1 from unstable is broken for you as well?
