I'm very sorry about the regression, but thank you very much for
narrowing it down and reporting it!
How did you narrow it down to *two* commits, and do you have to revert
both of them to avoid the hang? Usually a bisection identifies a
single commit, and the two you mention aren't related.

Can you collect a complete dmesg log (with a working kernel) and
output of "sudo lspci -vvxxx"? You can open a bug report at
https://bugzilla.kernel.org, attach the logs there, and respond here
with the URL.
Where does the hang happen? Is it when we configure the Comtrol card?
