My observations are not related to audio.

With the older laptop, I keep observing quick X crashes after startup.
This happens with 8.99.39 and Intel 2014. There is no specific action or
program to trigger the crash. It's random.

Using new Intel driver causes very slow startup (like 15 minutes?
sometimes longer) until some timeouts will expire, but X is in general
stable as long as I'm not using any hardware gpu features. Using hw
acceleration causes either application crash, X crash or instant
computer reset.

Audio with 8.99.39 is stable for me.

On my new laptop, I have just tested newer Intel driver and it is
tolerable ("splashes" for changes on the screen, typing text; hw output
in mpv seems to be usable). X crashes when attempting to start Opera.

I can perform any debugging after BSDCan. Hopefully my X won't crash
during the presentations.
