    All the main details on this are on the freedesktop bugzilla[1]. I can
    confirm it's still a problem and I've been tracking the intel-next
    tree for testing.

    Fundamentally the problem is that X can't allocate any memory when KMS
    is enabled on my chipset. Without knowing how memory should be
    allocated from the kernel by the X driver I haven't been able to look
    into it deeper. I've had some feedback from the intel guys but nothing
    recently.

    As always I stand ready to run tests and/or provide additional
    diagnostics if required.
