I don't think so. On my laptop, I can't directly install *any* recent
releases, since AGP was put into the default kernel. I had to install
4.4 and update to -STABLE from there.
Eric Anholt was planning on taking a look at this, but I hadn't heard
about any results. I had narrowed it down to something weird in the
aperture probe, but I couldn't see any reason for it to actually hang
at that specific point. To be honest, I had been pretty sure it was
just me, and I didn't have 100% confidence in my hardware anyway.
