Hi ubuntu-xers,

One of our popular feature requests is support for accelerated video
with KMS on i8xx [1]. This is especially important now that UMS
support is dropped. This will supported by default with the 2.6.33
kernel and -intel driver 2.10.0, but wasn't fully implemented when
2.6.32 reached stable. Since many distros are using 2.6.32, Daniel
Vetter (who implemented the overlay support) has made a backport [2]
available for distros to use [3]. He says Debian and Gentoo plans to
use this. Any chance of pulling it into Lucid?
