Call for testing intel graphics driver fix

For a long time, X has plagued me with intermittent flicker, and
sometimes an irrecoverable blackout on my i945 . This was caused by
pipe underruns, which were due to incorrect "watermark" calculations
(i. e. the display rendering queue wasn't managed properly).
Earlier in Jaunty I uploaded a quickfix from upstream, but it turned
out to be insufficient. Now upstream did a better and more robust
patch which should fix this once and for all. It works amazingly well
for me , but I'd like to get a little more confident in it before I
upload it to Jaunty.
I put it into my PPA for now . Can everyone running -intel on
Jaunty please install this and give feedback (positive and negative)
on the bug ?

Thanks a lot in advance for testing, much appreciated!
