Comment(by Quozl):

 * tested DCON power cycle, ''dcon-suspend dcon-resume'' did not clear
 problem, ''dcon-suspend d# 3 ms dcon-resume'' did clear problem.
  * tested disabling the default pull-ups on DCONSTAT and DCONIRQ#, no
  * compared DCON register values between working and non-working states,
 no difference.
  * reviewed kernel driver, could not find code that would power cycle DCON
 for this problem,
  * did find a comment that "the DCON seems to get confused if we change
 DCONLOAD too frequently", which we are doing half the time in Open
 Firmware, but adding a 25 ms delay between each change does not prevent

 An additional observation about the symptom: the static screen shimmers
 for about ten seconds after the test-dcon-freeze-glitch is stopped by key
