  blank console after upgrading to 3.2.0-99

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 12.04.5, ASUS model 1015E, x86_64

  When I boot the 3.2.0-99 kernel on my ASUS netbook, I pretty much
  never get a working display manager.  (I think it booted okay the
  first time after installing the kernel, but that's it.)  Usually I
  just get a black display.  I have also gotten

  - an almost complete login screen, except the background is wrong
  (uniform purple instead of my wallpaper), and trackpad clicks are
  ignored (but trackpad motion works)

  - stuck at the Ubuntu splash screen

  I once tried booting in recovery mode.  I noticed a message about
  modprobe being terminated by signal 9, and I noticed several messages
  about modprobe timeouts.  But other than that the messages didn't tell
  me anything that I could make sense of.

  I can ssh into the system.  Unfortunately, "apport-bug linux" gets
  stuck (it still says "collecting problem information" after 30
  minutes), so I'm filing this directly on Launchpad.  I can get the
  apport configuration information from the 3.2.0-98 kernel (that kernel
  works just fine).  I can also collect any log files, ps output, etc.
  that you'd like.  lightdm does seem to be running.  The only
  suspicious thing I see in the log files is that Xorg.0.log is missing
  a bunch of text that it contains when using the -98 kernel.

  I noticed that I had an out-of-date BIOS, but upgrading the BIOS did
  not fix anything.

  Reinstalling the -99 kernel did not help.
