I don't know if it will help, but when I filed a bug against the Intel
KMS implementation in 2.6.34-rc*

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=594542

I was advised to disable the new Intel KMS driver:

"Maybe you should switch back to UMS to get a stable system again, i.e. boot
with i915.modeset=0."

Don't know why I've written that, since intel no longer supports UMS.

So, AIUI the new Intel KMS driver is very badly behaving, but you can
disable it and use the old framebuffer driver.

Sure, that possible. BTW, we've patched the intel driver. So if KMS is
disabled on an intel machine, X silently falls back to fbdev.

Sounds like there needs to be a factory Intel KMS wiki page describing
workarounds. I suspect its different for different chipsets, etc.

I requested a section for the Release Notes already (Bug #595569).
