Hi Maxim Levitsky,
Yes, so I got interested about your patch.
In the final version of the Ubuntu-patch
+ * debian/patches/01_fix_compiz_video.diff:
+ - default to overlay mode on hardware that supports it to
+ make compiz video work
So I thought you patch is helpful getting overlay more activated.
(what it doesn't do for i965 without your patches)
Meanwhile I tried to research and it looks like my X3100 uses a GM965.
I guess the "M" means "Mobile", so your patch can't work?
I try to find documentation about what i965 flavour supports overlay
and what not. I'm digging around
http://intellinuxgraphics.org/documentation.html but have not found
