This new version is not working for me: the image is completely corrupted 
(except for the mouse cursor), while was working without any 
problem. The culprit is commit 6f48379fb8e5997b4b2098b7df5bed399bc559f6: 
reverting this, makes 2.7.0 work fine.

I'm using xserver 1.6.1, libdrm 2.4.9, kernel with KMS on x86_64.

00:02.1 Display controller [0380]: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series 
Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2a43] (rev 07)
