nouveau module crash during boot

The messages on my screen also appear in dmesg.
Description of problem:
Something goes wrong with the nouveau driver during boot of F20. My console fills with oops messages and my keyboard appears to be locked. I am able to log into the system using SSH, however.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F20 using VNC since Anaconda was unable to determine how to get graphical mode working.
2. Boot the new system (into multi-user.target).
2. Remove nomodeset from the boot parameters.
3. Set systemd's default.target to graphical.target.
A screen full of oops messages and a locked keyboard.
Well, since I couldn't get a graphical session in F19 and since Anaconda didn't know how to handle my display, I can't say that I was expecting much. But I was hoping to get a graphical session working.

For future reference, the "Fedora 20" I installed was actually Fedora 20 Beta Test Compose 1 (TC1) (network installation), since this is the latest "Fedora 20" currently available. I expect to be re-installing newer variants of F20 as its development progresses.
Issue already fixed upstream, and in kernel 3.12. I've sent the fix for the stable 3.11 tree too, and the Fedora kernel devs will pick it up from there.
Reassigning to those guys until they do!
commit 5495e39fb3695182b9f2a72fe4169056cada37a1 upstream, correct?
That's the one.
Added in Fedora git. The upstream stable maintainer is traveling at the moment, so who knows when he'll do another stable release.
kernel-3.11.4-201.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
kernel-3.11.4-101.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
kernel-3.11.4-301.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 19 testing repository,

Update it with:

Yep, kernel-3.11.4-301.fc20.x86_64 boots successfully without the nouveau module crashing.
