Another problem I encountered was i830_exa.c tries to use variable
argument macros, which are not as portable as one would like. Not long
ago there was a discussion about this and it was deemed unacceptable to
use C99-only features, becuase should be able to compile on a broader
set of platforms than those that support C99.

Does the author want to address this or should I submit a patch?
