Here comes a pretty significant bugfix release for the 2.6 2D series.
The goal of this release is to get out the major fixes for GEM and KMS
that we think we've pounded on enough to be stable -- certainly more
stable than previously.  Notable fixes include a significant BO memory
usage reduction (which many have suffered from with compositing),
textured XV suppor twith KMS, and rotation support with KMS.  Some
infrequent failure to render/xv with GEM on 965 (dmesg warnings about
being unable to bind objects) should also be fixed. 

But perhaps the exciting thing for most people will be the dynamic front
buffer allocation.  We nearly slipped this into 2.6.0, but decided that
it was just a little too new.  Well, turns out it was actually in good
shape, and it's time to get it out there.  You'll need UXA to do this.
