Okay. Some more info for you that will hopefully help you find this 
regression:

1) With KMS enabled, 2.6.29-rc1 was already bad and everything before 
that seemed broken.

2) I bisected with the following configuration:
- xf86-video-intel 2.6.99.902 (with some extra bugfixes applied, so it 
is something from post-2.6.99.902, but not the tip of the 2.7 branch, if 
you must know I can look up exactly what was in there).
- KMS was disabled in all tests
- I had UXA enabled in all tests
- For hardware see my first post in this thread, if you need more info 
please ask.

This is from git-bisect:

     drm/i915: add fence register management to execbuf

     Adds code to set up fence registers at execbuf time on pre-965 chips as
     necessary.  Also fixes up a few bugs in the pre-965 tile register 
support
     (get_order != ffs).  The number of fences available to the kernel 
defaults
     to the hw limit minus 3 (for legacy X front/back/depth), but a new 
parameter
     allows userspace to override that as needed.
