Savage IX with dri enabled locks T22 on boot

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

IBM T22 has savage ix video chipset. I did a clean install of Feisty 7.04 beta from alternative cd. Install works perfectly but the laptop appears to hard lock on reboot with a black screen.
You cannot use alt-f keys to logon to a terminal session. I commented out the dri & glx lines of xorg.conf and the laptop boots correctly to GDM screen. These are the lines I commented out.

# Load "glx"

#Section "DRI"
# Mode 0666

Edgy works correctly on T22 laptop. Problem reproduced with live cd.

Option "BusType" "PCI"
to the Device section of your xorg.conf? Of course, please revert your previous changes at the same time.
