Note that Guennadi is running kernel 3.5 which does not contain that
patch - generally there are billions of ways to hang your gpu, so
every gpu hang needs it's own bug (until we've analyzed the
error_state and triaged the bug taking other evidence into account).
Also, this is on a different gpu generation, so even more likely that
it's a different kind of hang.

Thanks, Daniel
