Continuing the flurry of releases, this week saw the release of
xorg-1.13 bringing with it the first steps towards hotpluggable gpu
support and the ability to offload DRI rendering onto other GPUs. In
light of that advance, this release includes the support code by Dave
Airlie to integrate PRIME into xf86-video-intel and make those new
features available.

Aside from landing PRIME, a few other bugs were fixed since 2.20.5:

 * Fix framebuffer leak on server regeneration

 * Fix texture cache flushing on IvyBridge and Kwin with plastique

 * Redirect large solid fills on SandyBridge+. By large I mean greater
   than 8192 or 16384 pixels on SandyBridge and IvyBridge respectively.

 * Fix up backlight option handling in the manpage and uxa.

 * Unbreak ZaphodHeads.
