Some time later, and after some testing, it appears that with
xf86-video-intel 2.2.1 and xserver 1.1.1, AIGLX fails.  Is this
expected, or should I get this working?  AIGLX isn't a requirement as
far as I'm concerned, but I'd like to understand if I did something
wrong or if everything's normal :)

Looking at src/i830_dri.c, it seems that the driver wants DRIINFO 5.4 to
map the framebuffer itself, but I'm not sure what the behaviour is
supposed to be when that's not available (commit
2b1ec0f51479c1d7e5e62803c68feca29375519d seems relevant).  Can someone
clarify this?
