Loading the module with modeset=1 results in insmod blocked in
kernel state (not consuming CPU cycles either). The last kernel
message is always the same (ib pool ready). This seems to be
independent of agpmode and no_wb. The kernel messages when
loading the driver are:

For now, with modeset=0, agpmode=-1 and no_wb=1, the driver
seems to work. But it sometimes took hours to fail, so some
more wait is needed.
