 lots of people have been reporting this problem since feb.     5.5 
 boots, 6.2 boots, 6.3 doesn't, 7.0 doesn't.
 some obscure patch somewhere (which we can't find anymore) fixed it.
 here is dmsg for a 6.3 system with patch (that we can't find) that 
 actually works.
 want a dmsg for one that doesn't boot?  can't get it apparently.  can't 
 would be nice if it works in 7.1 and 6.4 (I will send you a box with 5.5 
 on it if you want)
