[ Robert Hooker ]
* Disable DRI on Sandybridge chipsets. Support for them will not be released
  until the Q42010 Intel releases, which will not be pulled into maverick.
  Without this change, all 3D apps on these devices cause hangs.
  (LP: #639667)
* Add 102_b43_pciid_update.patch. Fixes detection of a new b43
  chipset revision that is being shipped. Without this the drivers
  will not attempt to load even though this chipset is the same as
  the previous b43 ones. Backport of upstream commit 55b5fe8880.
  (LP: #640214)

[ Christopher James Halse Rogers ]
* debian/patches/101_copy-fb.patch: Move scratch pixmap creation to the
  drmmode_copy_fb function, and clean up after we've used it. Fixes the
  SIGSEGV in FreeClientResources when logging out of KDE (LP: #628077)
* debian/patches/106_backport_vblank_on_server_regenerate_fix.patch:
  Backport fix for SwapBuffers hang after server regenerate. LP 628077
  was hiding this by crashing the server. Fixes kwin desktop effects hanging
  on second and subsequent logins.
* Cherry-pick e30f0338 to free the Screen pixmap on close. Fixes a memory
  leak on server regeneration, and another crash on KDE log out hidden by
  LP 628077.

* debian/patches/101_copy-fb.patch: Explicitly disable copyfb functionality
  on gen6 (Sandybridge) where it is not working.
* Update Sandybridge device id's. (LP: #632488)

[ Christopher James Halse Rogers ]
* debian/patches/101_copy-fb.patch:
  + Update for Xserver 1.9
* debian/control:
  + Bump build-depends on xserver-xorg-dev to ensure we pick up the new ABI

[ Martin Pitt ]
* debian/rules: Do not install the big upstream changelog.

Re-add 102-disable-page-flipping-v2.patch. Spate of freeze bugs: recieved.
(LP: #609073)

127. By Chris Halse Rogers on 2010-07-19

* Merge from Debian experimental (LP: #601052). Remaining Ubuntu changes:
  + debian/apport-gpu-error-intel.py, debian/xserver-xorg-video-intel.udev,
    debian/xserver-xorg-video-intel:
    Add apport script to collect debug information on GPU hangs
  + rules: Install udev rule to run the script when the kernel detects hung
    GPU.
  + 101_copy-fb.patch: Adds feature to driver so Xserver can draw
    root windows with no background. This enables smooth boot with
    Plymouth.
  + control: Add Recommends on intel-gpu-tools to xserver-xorg-video-intel
    package for use by GPU hang scripts.
  + xserver-xorg-video-intel.preinst.in, xserver-xorg-video-intel.postinst.in,
    rules:
    Don't install /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf, and remove it on upgrades.
    At best it's redundant (as the kernel defaults to KMS), at worst it breaks
    the ability to disable KMS.
  + 103-mbp-backlight-support.patch: Enables xrandr backlight control for
    macbook's using the mbp_backlight module.
* Drop 102-disable-page-flipping-v2.patch: all the upstream bugs mentioned
  in the patch are closed. If we get a spate of freeze bugs, start looking
  here.

* Add 102-disable-page-flipping-v2.patch: Disables page flipping support which
  is causing frequent hangs, but leaves the events.
* Add 103-mbp-backlight-support.patch: Enables xrandr backlight control for
  macbook's using the mbp_backlight module. (LP: #417770)

124. By Chris Halse Rogers on 2010-04-26

* Drop debian/patches/107_disable_dri_on_845_855.patch:
  + This attempt to work around the crashes on i845 and i855 documented in
    LP: #541492 and LP: #541511 simply shuffled the brokeness around. It
    hasn't helped enough, and it unconditionally disables 3D which worked for
    some users before.

releasing version 2:2.9.1-3ubuntu4

122. By Steve Langasek on 2010-04-15

Drop /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf; in the best case it's redundant
because KMS is on by default in the Ubuntu kernel, in the worst case it
breaks our ability to forcibly disable KMS when there's a problem.
