Hi Seth,

Yes, I apologize, I guess I panicked about being unable to switch consoles so I started doing nonsense.

So let's go one step at a time:

here's vmalloc (top offenders) and meminfo from a boot without xforcevesa and nomodeset (i.e. using the nouveau driver as during the observed failures).

I will test the mainline build you suggested and report back as soon as I have something.

Finally, for the vt switching problem, I ran the command you suggested and I had the same behavior (i.e. can't switch to the vt). However, I've seen this on one other system (a Dell Vostro 3400 with dual graphics which is using the intel driver), so I think I'll do some more testing about that and report it as a different bug.

Thanks so much for your help!
