Subject: Need X testers on Alpha. I think we've got it this time.

I need a few people to test X on Alpha. Michael Cree found what we
believe is the commit that broke X and also provided a patch to fix
some undefined references. We just need to confirm that these changes
make X work again and then we'll get them pulled into master and the
1.7 branch in time for 1.7.1

I'd especially like testers for:
- Radeon, varying generations, both user mode setting and kernel mode setting
- Matrox

Testers on non-BWX alphas would also be quite nice, since the last
round of email seemed to show that you do in fact exist.

My xserver repo is available at
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~mattst88/xserver/ and contains the
patches we think will fix it.

Hats off to Michael Cree. :)
