So with an update to yesterday's netbsd-5 things are different; I no
longer see a PLT symbol related error.  However, with both DRI and
without, the laptop reboots when starting X11 with the savage driver.

Unfortunately, the dmesg backlog is lost, dumpcore doesn't seem to work
(it complains about (null) bad address at reboot), so I couldn't
diagnose the problem yet.  I might try remote console with ddb later if
I have the time.

On a side note, I also see these in dmesg when savagedrm is enabled
(might not be related):

savagedrm0 at vga1error: [drm:pid0:drm_attach] *ERROR* pci_mapreg info for 32 fa
