This is really great news; thank you!  I would definitely want to try
this on my Core i5 laptop, but I am running modular from pkgsrc,
rather than the native version.  Would it be too much to ask what I
would need to update (besides the kernel and the xf86-video-intel
driver from pkgsrc, of course) in order to get this to work with
modular  The superficial similarity between
src/external/mit/xorg and xsrc/external/mit/stuff is particularly
confusing for me (I don't even have xsrc/ as I have never compiled
native yet).

Sorry about being so naÃve...
