I'm actually having issues booting the new kernels on my laptop, but I haven't the
opportunity to investigate.

As far as I can tell, it's in kernel, pre-initrd, that it hangs, and the only way to
break out is any keyboard input. I find myself repeatedly hitting shift or control...

Otherwise, it seems a decent bit smoother.
