I performed a system update (arch linux) but have experienced issues with KMS on any kernel past 3.4.7 (all of 3.5 up till the current 3.6.3). The boot sequence stalls at the point where the KMS hooks usually kick in and referesh the screen. I can make the kernel boot with 'nomodeset' option.
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54662 looks similar, but the none of the 3.6 kernels i've tried resove this issue.
