They are, no hangs when using 4.19.132_rt59-0 + the "intel" driver,
hangs when using 5.10.6.arch1-1 + the "modesetting" driver. The reason
to test the "modesetting" driver where way longer hangs caused usually
by launching Firefox, as well as complete virtualbox freezes, when
using earlier 5.x kernels + the "intel" driver. Btw. not only Firefox
hangs, the whole session becomes unresponsive for a few seconds, resp.
when using the "intel" driver with earlier 5.x kernels for IIRC several
minutes, at least for way longer than just a few seconds.

Thank you, I'll take a look at this.
