Speaking as X.Org packager for SUSE/Novell that is

16721 - [965GM EXA] Fonts sometimes get corrupted on VT switch
16773 - Broken systray when using "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy", 
        bad performance using "always"+"smart"

at the moment. And please do not remove XAA support unless you address
the EXA performance issues down to i830. Otherwise we need to ship two
intel drivers. I would like to avoid this.
