I apologize for not getting back sooner, but at times my real life calls and I 
have to push linux to the side for a week or two. I'll have a bit of time this 
week and next to help as much as I can. What I really need is a list of what I 
can get off my box to help track this down. Heck, I don't even mind configuring 
the router to get the smart folks in and giving an account if that would help.

Since this bug occurs before logging is available, that makes it doubly-hard for 
me to know where to even begin with this one. I've already run tests with both 
configurations of KMS early/late and posted the results to the bug report, but 
what more I need to do is where I'm drawing a blank. I'll start with "debug" 
appended to the kernel line and post the results back at the bug report. We'll 
go from there.

The big issue/mystery is why in the heck the box hardlocks on boot starting with 
the 2nd boot after initramfs is compiled. At least I know that is the issue that 
needs to be addressed first to find out where the bug is. I'm a great set of 
hands at the keyboard -- it's knowing what to type that's the problem :p
