Same problem here...

The soft lockup occurs in different stages each time, but always before X is started.

Dell M1710, Core Duo @ 2.16GHz

I should mention that my 2.6.17-7-generic boots, while my 2.6.17-10-generic does not.

I'm a bit afraid to regenerate the initrd for the -7 kernel (still using the old splash screen) as I think that might uncover that problem for the -7 kernel too. But I'm not sure.

This makes a default edgy install unusable on potentially every modern Dell laptop, as the chipsets are all the same. Please raise priority.

Note: also using the ipw driver.
