I got booting. The last change I did was deselecting
CONFIG_FB_TILEBLITTING. Unfortunately, I have no idea how this actually
affects the ATI frambebuffer. 

To make it even more strange, after reenabling CONFIG_FB_TILEBLITTING,
it still boots up cleanly. Obviously, I missed out on something.

Besides, I have the impression that the disk reacts slower. As hdparm
does not tell a difference, it might be due the coffein, tough.

No effect.

Well, the good point is, it works again. The bad point, I do not know
why. Anyway, thanks for the support.
