Good question Amit.

I'm 98% sure the "corresponding xf86-intel patch" is:

Which means that it only applies to GM45 cards (i.e. laptops with a
modern intel card). On the G45 machines (desktop with integrated modern
intel card) the AGP fix alone is sufficient not just to boot but to run
full compiz etc. I only have a G45 machine so I can only confirm that
part of the story.

To sort this out I've asked the intel driver maintainers to clarify the patch dependency and also give their opinion about the suitability of cherry picking this/these patches. My question was posted here (and I hope they will reply within a few hours):
