System: Lenovo ThinkPad T500
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3650
Trying to load radeon (as a module or in kernel) with modeset not explicitly disabled causes a kernel NULL pointer dereference if i915 has initialised the fb console already.
That behaviour did not occur in 2.6.38, only after upgrading to 126.96.36.199 (haven't had the time to bisect yet).
If I disable switching in the BIOS and move to the radeon card as exclusive adapter, everything works fine. with dual graphics stack

don't suppose anyone can bisect this? you'd only have to bisect drivers/gpu
I can probably try and reproduce it next week.

please test this.
It seems to be working fine.
I confirm that Dave's patch resolves the issue.
Thanks a lot!
