Another thing to think of is that you may have to rebuild the
initrd/initramfs after editing /etc/modprobe.d/i2c_i801.conf if
i2c-i801 happens to be part of it (and make sure
that /etc/modprobe.d/i2c_i801.conf is indeed included in
initrd/initramfs then.)

I recall reports about hangs when we first added support for
interrupts. I think we addressed all the bugs in this area since then
but maybe not. So you may want to try disable_features=0x30 to disable
both interrupts and SMBus Host Notify.
