I'm trying to remember the history. Here are the dates of those updates.
2009-12-08 Merge remote branch 'korg/drm-radeon-dp' into drm-linus Dave Airlie 24 -323/+2657
2010-02-17 drm/nouveau: fix i2ctable bounds checking Marcin Slusarz 1 -3/+4
2010-03-01 drm/nv50: Improve PGRAPH interrupt handling. Marcin Kościelnicki 7 -56/+622
After the first cloning, the other packages like drm or xf86-video-nouveau didn't compile. So i reverted back to using a stock debian kernel.
After the first update. I'm pretty sure it was working correctly. No cursors disappearing.
After the second update clearly it's failing.
I'd be glad to revert back and test, if someone would help me with the git commands. Should i try git bisect?
I suppose i'll need to do the same with drm and xf86-video-nouveau in order to (1) get it to compile and (2) recreate the same conditions. Is that right?
