    Intel will give the fixes to Ubuntu to roll into 2.4.x hopefully.

    The problem is this isn't a kernel ABI at all. This is two pieces of code
    which are doing the exact same thing to a piece of hardware, one from the
    kernel and one from userspace. When they disagree things break, however
    sometimes when they agree things are broken. . The solution is proper
    kernel graphics drivers, however that future is further away.
