What makes you think that non modular drivers will be synced with X server
changes? It is up to maintainers to watch X server changes and make patches as
Yes, I know that current tree of X server and drivers does not build. But
I don't care. And I even do not know why I should build all the drivers if
I do not need them.
Besides, non modular X server still does not solve problem with e.g. synaptics
driver that is no more maintained and it is not a part of the tree. But almost
all laptops use it todays.
