The patches are not yet merged
I also don't see them at the repository I received from Daniel
When will the patches be commited or merged ?

Thank you, fantastic news! :)

I absolutely accept your help. Thank you!
As far as I understand I need to compile kernel from git.
I use Ubuntu Oneiric 11.10.
I found this article. Maybe you can have a look and tell me if these are the right steps to follow:
Basically what I don't know is at which step and how apply your patch.
Just to confirm with you, I run Xorg 1.10.4 (xorg-edgers crashes after a few mins for me).
I will have time to try tomorrow evening and over the weekend.

Hi Angela and Alfonso,
You may be in luck. I encountered the same interlace problem last weekend with
my 1080i television and G35 chipset, and wrote a patch. While my chipset is not
a Sandy Bridge chipset, they apparently share the same interlace logic.

Nb: The initial version of the patch set (given above) enables interlacing only
on generation 4 chipsets, such as G35 and Q45.
Version 2 of the patch set will work on a broader range of chipsets including
Sandy Bridge. I have just posted this to the list. It is also available here:

To test you will need to recompile your kernel. In my case there was no need
to recompile Xorg, as the problem is confined to the kernel drm driver. If
you are running Debian or Ubuntu I can walk you through it.
