[Intel-gfx] [ANNOUNCE] xf86-video-intel (2.8.0 rc1)

I have an external VGA section in my xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "VGA"
    HorizSync 24-92
    VertRefresh 43-60
    Option "Above" "LVDS"
    Option  "Primary" "false"
    Option "Modes" "1280x1024 1024x768"
    Option "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"

When starting X with VGA _unplugged_, KMS enables the VGA connector
and xrandr extendes my desktop.

(II) intel(0): Output VGA1 connected
(II) intel(0): Output VGA1 using initial mode 1280x1024

[drm] DAC-6: set mode 1280x1024 20

And I still have lots of 'no EDID data' in kernel log for VGA1 and LVDS1, too.

I've attached my dmesg, xorg log with modedebug and xorg.conf.
