Yes, a patch was checked into git that fixed the issue. Use the git HEAD 
version of the driver to fix it.

If Xv is working (output of 'xvinfo' should say something other than "no 
adaptors") and you don't see the blue chromakey when you move the video 
window around or use compositing effects, then you are using textured video.

I'm not even sure that the traditional 2D hardware scaling is supported with 
this hardware.

The Xv adaptor is called "Intel(R) Textured Video" or something similar.
