There have been a number of recent fixes to the i915 driver which
handles Intel graphics devices. Can you reproduce this with the current
kernel version in unstable (2.6.32-9) or the version in experimental
(2.6.33-1~experimental.3)?

I say we take off; nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Yes, this repros with 2.6.32-9.

and what about 2.6.33 in experimental?

if yes please file a bug upstream in bugzilla.kernel.org and let
us know the bug nr so that we can track it.
thanks

In that case, please report this bug upstream at
<http://bugzilla.freedesktop.org>. Specify the product as 'DRI' and
component as 'DRM/Intel'. Include the kernel version (you can specify
that the Debian kernel package is based on upstream 2.6.32.9), the udev
log and the output of the command 'lspci -vvn -s 00:02.1'. Let us know
the bug number so we can track it.

Ben.

Tony, did you report this upstream?

Not yet, sorry. Things got busy here and I had to push it on the
backburner. I'll get to it now.

Thanks for a pleasant report. What kernel are you using these days?
If you try the kernel from squeeze, can you still reproduce this? (It
should work install without trouble on a wheezy/sid system.) Would
you be interested in pursuing a fix for this in squeeze (for example
by testing patches)?

Curious,
Jonathan

Yes, I'm still getting the issue, sort of. My understanding is that some parts of the hotplug pipeline have moved around, but I still get a spam of hotplug events from the graphics that nearly kills the system after waking up. The most reliable way to trigger it is to wake from sleep, open firefox (iceweasel), and play a youtube video (flash). The symptoms will often occur without going through these exact steps though.

Executing the command "intel_reg_write 0x61110 0x0" as root stops the hotplug spam and restores system functionality, though this also apparently stops all hotplug events so the system won't detect attaching an external monitor or something to the VGA port.

I'm currently running linux-image-2.3.0-2-amd64 package version 3.2.12-1.

I could certainly test patched kernels, as I can very reliably reproduce the problem.
