I tested this on G965 (Intel desktop motherboard DG965RY)
Doesn't work, I first see screen corruption, and then the system crashes.
Tried to start without DRI2 and the system didn't crash, but the corruption was there too.
I used latest graphical stack : (2.6.24 + dri git + mesa git + xserver git + xf86-video-intel#intel-batchbuffer)
I am in process of studying of intel documentation, and I will try to help fix bugs in the driver.
The most important thing that intel driver misses, and I will do my best to fix this,
is that is doesn't initialize the hardware fully, thus in case of error, only a full reboot
brings graphics back.
