I don't know if it's because the kms-enabled kernel or the new xorg
packages, but the intel drivers are working again on my i686 with
855GM Intel graphics. Xv support is not working but it's still much
better than the vesa drivers that I had to use since the intel-legacy
drivers stopped working a while ago.
