SubjectRe: 2.6.32 regression (bisected): Video tearing/glitching with T400 laptops
From
Hi Jesse.
Sorry to jump in but I also had issues with -32rc (i915 chip) and this
patch seems to have resolved all problems.

I don't know how to describe in english what happened to my desktop
but probably "glitches" and "tearings" could be the correct words.
Also sometimes the screen went blank and needed to switch to terminal
console and back to return to the normal X screen.

Nothing in the logs, neither messages nor Xorg.0.log.

Regards,
Fabio
