Xinerama causes the DRI to be disabled, and I see you have Load "dri" in
your XF86Config.  Turning off Xinerama could allow the DRI to try to
load.  If you have an old version of drm-kmod or the DRM modules
installed which hasn't been updated when you updated a kernel, it could
easily cause a panic and reboot your machine.
