Here comes a point release to fix some nasty bits that slipped out in
2.6.0.  Most important is the stability fix for 915 render/video versus
DRI2.  But it's also got some useful fixes for KMS -- VT switching
should no longer hang, and the kernel fb layer deciding it's dpms time
shouldn't leave you with the wrong thing after you come back.

We've still got some issues with 965 DRI2 versus render/video, and
8xx-class in general.  Hopefully we can fix up something for them soon.
(965 fixes are in master, but I don't want to see it get into stable
until it's had a lot of testing.  That's some really dodgy code.)

Eric Anholt (4):
      Re-emit i915 composite setup when the batchbuffer wraps.
      Protect i915 textured video against batchbuffer wrapping.
      Fix invarient state emits for DRI2 (do it per batch, since there's no lock).
      Bump version to 2.6.1.

Jesse Barnes (2):
      Tear down batchbuffers unconditionally on LeaveVT
      Don't run in KD_TEXT mode even with KMS

Kshitij Kulshreshtha (1):
      Support sysfs backlight control for Sony laptops in xf86-video-intel
