-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.
