The upstream list for issues with Intel graphics chips is
intel-gfx at lists.freedesktop.org, but there's probably a fair bit of
information we should get first. I've been chasing a pile of

Ignore the bits about testing the non-KMS environment and the X log,
they're not going to be relevant for you. But the video ROM, register
dump, and dmesg output will all be informative.
