I've been told that the new kernels 2.2.x no longer support the platinum
video driver which the 7200 uses;  but I note that there is a platinum
option in the config.  Since I have no OF and serial output dumps garbage
I can't confirm the platinum boot freeze problem.  Are there any ideas?
I'm going to test 2.2.2 from the cvs tree to see if it is still
problematic.  Any comments?
