This driver does work a lot better. Still slower than pure framebuffer and 
some artefacts but indeed usable.

When moving this to extra with the new kernel we should post an 
anouncement, that users of at least 855GM (and maybe others) have to 
change to that legacy driver as xf86-video-intel does not produce any 
usefull output at all; X is completly broken.
