The '-mode num' option to the X server doesn't do anything on my
machine and I presume it's because I don't run -current - I'm
using the 1.0 kernel sources.  I would be very interested in
a pointer to 1.0 diffs for Retina Z3 relevant changes.  If these
changes are in -current, maybe I should use that instead since
there's apparently a 1.0 bug that causes gdb to lock up the machine
which I've definitely been bitten by.

To users/developers of -current kernel sources - have there been any
changes since 1.0 that will force me to recompile binaries other
than the kernel?  I've only got kernel sources.
