Why not fix it in the kernel once and for all? That has benefits for
everyone, as no user has to care about options ever again and the
problems get fixed in all distributions over time...

That'd be ideal, unfortunately, in this case I just realize my
original quickfix is probably not right -- I still get intermittent
crashes (with the screen going a bit blurry if the monitor is on at
that moment).
