I'm forced to use some older stuff:

     2.6.31 kernel
     2.9.1 xf86-video-intel

The newer KMS drivers break some things on my old system.

Meanwhile, I have a couple of machines that will always 
report "Output TV connected" when doing a soft reboot -- 
whether there's a cable connected or not.  This messes up 
the desktop resolution.

Let me know if you have a better solution.
