agp.ko is where the AGP fix was, though there's a bunch of other stuff
in there you want to pick up. You really want drm.ko and i915.ko
regardless of whether you use 3D apps or not.

Depends on whether your stuff is built in or as a module.

drm-intel-next kernel, master libdrm, xf86-video-intel, mesa

git branch -r shows branches in the remotes you have available.
If you're looking to clone a new kernel tree from my repo:
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/anholt/drm-intel.git
git-checkout -b drm-intel-next origin/drm-intel-next
though if you've already got a kernel tree, learning to use git-remote
to manage fetching from multiple remotes is highly recommended.
