Default Re: 9746 8800GTS kernel bug leaving X-session - fixed with 9755

After upgrading from 9746 to 9755, I can boot an 8800GTS with vga=792.

[root@goth ~]# cat /proc/cmdline
ro root=LABEL=/ 3 vga=792

I can run startx and logout repeatedly without a kernel bug. It just drops back to the normal console prompt.
