Thanks for the feedback, this sounds positive!

By stalled, do you mean that the boot just took longer than you
expected, so you rebooted, or did you determine that it had in fact
hung?

It is not unusual for the first boot after installing a new kernel to
take longer than normal, if it needs to do some module rebuilds or
whatnot. It's also possible that due to the variety of plumbing
changes, that it might take a couple boots to get all the bits set up
right, although that does not sound ideal.

On the other hand, these GPU lockups can sometimes come and go
intermittently. So you might want to reboot a few times to make sure
the problem doesn't come back.
