Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest v3.6 kernel[0] (Not a kernel in the daily directory) and install both the linux-image and linux-image-extra .deb packages.

Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. Please only remove that one tag and leave the other tags. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text.

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, for example it will not boot, please add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.
Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.

DRM_AST appears to be marked EXPERIMENTAL. As such, lets disable it for now in Quantal as it appears to be problematic.

config DRM_AST
        tristate "AST server chips"
        depends on DRM && PCI && EXPERIMENTAL
        select DRM_TTM
        select FB_SYS_COPYAREA
        select FB_SYS_FILLRECT
        select FB_SYS_IMAGEBLIT
        select DRM_KMS_HELPER
        select DRM_TTM
        help
         Say yes for experimental AST GPU driver. Do not enable
         this driver without having a working -modesetting,
         and a version of AST that knows to fail if KMS
         is bound to the driver. These GPUs are commonly found
         in server chipsets.
