OK, after compiling a custom kernel, the timeout issues have vanished. =
appears that the generic kernel included with the 5.4-RELEASE amd64 =
doesn't like the ICH5R controller, but there is a usable workaround in
simply booting with safe mode until you get your kernel compiled. =
is purring like a lion... I'm happy as a clam, now...
