Well, having i855 here too, and frankly, xorg-x11-drv-intel+libdrm+kernel
combination at F-11 was really horrible one. Upgrading to Rawhide seems to 
fixed it. I don't see any crash/hang for a some time.

Well, Xv's still now working at all when KMS is enabled (and when is
disabled the whole system hangs at start :).

But there's patch http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20901
you might wanna test it -- looked good.

Indeed. Perhaps you may try to rebuild Rawhide kernel for F-11 and
test it? (Not that I knew what happens when you do so.)
