Well, it doesn't hangs but I can surf around and fireup Gnome2 while I get 
the crazy busy singal light on at all the time. There are no crazy 
CPU/Memory in the ps/top, but just 90%-100% idle. I am pretty clueless on 
this one, so I am stick to the old 5.1-CURRENT for now until someone know 
what's wrong with my problem. I have four kernels under /boot, two of them 
have debug enable and I am willing to do anything.
