I thought the 7.4 branch was supposed to be a stabilisation of the 7.3
series. Looking at the changelog since 7.3, there is not a great deal on
that branch so far, so hopefully it will be useful to look at.

It is just 6 commits past the intel_2009q1_rc1, which I presume will be
what the latest Intel driver is supposed to be run against.

It is142 commits past mesa_7_3. Scanning through, they all look like
fixes, or important additions. There are various there which may be
critical to getting decent intel performance, including fixing a texture
leak, and some changes to reduce usage of BO memory.
