Hi, first I'd like to say thanks to you and I'd say to Jesse, thanks,
and I am here to try to have a best graphics, I trying this software on
my working machine but I know this is a devel version so I don't care if
my machine brokes or not, normally I think this software can't break
hardware, in this type of issues. And having version 2.2.0 to test it is
IMO the great test will be when I have the new drm with Mesa devel which
have i915tex, but we will need xserver 1.5 ! (not yet released).
Most people have xserver 1.3 for Xorg 7.2 and no distro I don't see any,
is shipping the released xserver 1.4 and Xorg 7.3, ( I don't know
why :) ).
What I'd like say when on xorg-drv-video-intel was introduce buffers
stuff (20 Set 2007), I am running git Mesa and git drm at the time and
for it I need xserver >= 1.4 , but if I used video-intel 2.2 with last
stable version of Mesa and of drm (more than a year version) , it can be
work , I don't test it to be honest, with xserver 1.3. 

Lukas, I see 3 patches in this tread, what is the best combination ?
"also something" say that is this patch more something, should I apply
all of the 3 or just yours 2 ?   
I have applied yours 2 and no crash nor flicks.
