This has been on my todo since March, last time I talked with James, but 
real life has been rather though with me lately, so I'm fighting to find 
both the time an energy to do it. I'll try and do a release before the 
end of the year.

I've been quickly reading through them. I still have some comments I 
need to send but after a bit of shaping up, it should be good to go, 
given the various chipsets get a test run for possible regressions. I 
definitely need to dust of my VIA test farm.
Any help reviewing the patches would be greatly appreciated. I'll also 
try to get in touch with James to see what's he's up to these days.
It seems Mario is warming up too, our mails about DRI1 crossed yesterday.
