I guess we need to ask FESco to adopt ext2 as the default /boot
filesystem instead.... but seriously, that will not affect anything.
I may have been overly bored yesterday. I logged out and let the laptop
sit for 5 minutes and it eventually stopped flickering so much. It would
flicker after 30 seconds to 1 minute, which is better.
I'll consider the debug output Roberto mentioned when I get bored again.
