As follow-up to the second issue described in

I have uploaded intel_reg_dumper output to

	X server started
	logged in (kdm)
	should be the same as above
	now I'm playing video with mplayer -vo xv
	stopped mplayer
	switched to vt 1, this kills X (SEGFAULT in xserver code as result of
lockup) and kdm restarts X, so the dump is with X (kdm) on display
	switched to vt 1 again, which presents a black screen

The most notable difference seems to be the difference between before
playing video with mplayer and after.

I'm running xf86-video-intel master as pulled today. I hope that helps
to resolve the issue. I can provide more info if required.
