I have news! The good part is that I got 54 packages to build on top of
master. The bad part is that when I try to use the resulting packages as
my system configuration, my computer gets stuck in tty1, and attempting
to switch to Xorg on tty7 leaves my screen frozen though the system is
still responsive.

Anyone want to see the 54 patches and possibly help me root around for
the issue?
