Is it an ALi chipset? Does it have an agp return.. 6 on boot? Last time I
tested my old TravelMate 212TX it worked with a patch to agp_ali.c,
otherwise it wouldn't boot (and still doesn't in 5.3-BETA5) unless I used
safe mode.

That's not the exact patch I used, but I think it fixes the same problem. I
am going to try it later today.
