[Intel-gfx] black desktop in KDE4 with current git master

just in case anyone cares, I report an issue found after updating and
compiling the full X stack (dri2proto, libdrm, mesa, xserver and the intel
driver) as of a few minutes ago. I am running kernel 2.6.30-rc2 (plus jbarnes'
"drm/i915: allow tiled front buffers on 965+") with DRI2 and KMS.
Enabling kwin's compositing effects, I get a black desktop with no panel and
no plasma applets. However, I can run and see application windows and the
compositing effects work. In the attached snapshot, you can indeed see the
opacity and translucency effects working.
If I disable compositing effects, I can get everything (desktop, panel,
applets) back again.
Since I am frequently monitoring the git master, I can add that such a
behavior appeared after the last changes related to the implementation of
DRI2GetBuffersWithFormat. Before those changes, however, compositing effects
failed to activate.
