Sometime on Sep 7, Erle Pereira assembled some asciibets to say:

It is a DMA problem with the DRM module, but I am unable to isolate it.
I could try using the 2.4.7 modules with 2.4.9, but given the large
difference in size, I'm not sure this would work.  Will try it anyway.
I checked the 2.4.10pre4 Changelog, but there's no mention of any
fixes for i810.


Could this be the best day of my life?
