Done.  (I didn't subscribe to the list; not sure if that was required.
My mail wasn't bounced, so I suppose it worked.)

By the way, I just noticed that while the patch does prevent the server
from crashing, it doesn't actually solve the problem: videos are now all
black.  Not crashing the server is certainly an improvement, but this is
still unusable. :-(

I'm guessing the problem is whatever sets the intel_pixmap_private field
to NULL, but I have no idea where to look for that, or how to debug it.

It only happens after the server has been running for some time (a few
minutes), which sounds like it will not be easy to track down,
unfortunately.  If anyone wants to try, or can tell me what I can try,
please let me know.
