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.
