So the system hangs after I login, and I can't ssh to the box.
I am on Ubuntu utopic.
kernel : 3.16.0-25-generic x86_64
mesa : 10.3.0
xf86-video-nouveau : 1.0.11
This is issue happened also on ubuntu trusty, and probably on saucy as well.
Please note also that I have issues with the nvidia proprietary driver.
<mirak> ./nvapeek 0x100c14
<mirak> 00100c14: 00010003
So it's a very different issue than the sort of thing that the macbooks were experiencing.
The mother board with the igp is "Gigabyte ga-e7aum-ds2h"
This happen on two gigabyte ga-e7aum-ds2h that I have, so is not a hardware issue.

It seems so. Init'ing the NVAC on the MBPs failed with interrupt 0x00400000 iirc, whereas this one passes the initialisation without troubles, but fails when loading X.
I would be interested by a mmio trace from the Nvidia driver (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/MMIOTracing), to compare it with mine and see what's going differently.
You mentioned issues with the Nvidia driver, what kind of issues are you experiencing? (If it fails the same way, there won't be much we can do... Probably just poking the Nvidia guys about it.)
What version of the nvidia driver should i use ?

The latest version supporting the card would be better (which should be 340.58), but previous versions sould be fine too.
Is this still happening with kernel 3.19? If so, please attach the requested information so that we can help you.
