I am using the nouveau kernel tree which I updated this morning, but I have the issue since the very first time when switching to the nouveau kernel tree. By then about three weeks ago it was tagged 2.6.31-rc3.
Parsing the VBIOS hangs at a certain point and later, the driver switches to software framebuffer console.
I have attached the kernel log.
The GPU lockup is gone with recent kernels. However, the 2-second timeout also included in the dmesg still exists.
