NVidia's binary driver needs working IPC routines to run (so even XFree86
4.3.0 needs patching, no matter what I said before).

Although it was a hack for XFree86 4.2.1, since some #ifdef'ing was needed
inside the source, it is very easy for 4.3.0.

I'd like very much to see this patch committed. Could there be any reason
not to activate support for SysV IPC services in XFree86 ?

[I reformatted the diff a bit.]
