-1 from me. Reasons for this: 1. The fix-i915.patch was removed, this causes my laptop to see a connected television again, while my laptop doesn't even have an output for that 2. Massive screen flicker when starting up X. Something has regressed seriously in the intel driver.
I see Thomas removed the fix-i915.patch file, because it was "not accepted upstream". The only reference I can find for this patch is that nobody ever tested if TV-Out actually works when this patch is applied. As we haven't got any bugreports for this and nobody ever tested the patch with a hooked up TV, I'd say just add it back.
