Wouldn't it be nice if the servers that we cared about were in the xorg-server tree itself, so I could try building with these changes on a linux machine to see what broke.  Oh wait, if we had the drivers in the tree to begin with we wouldn't need to do that anyways...

In all seriousness, yes.  This change is in xserver in this run on my tinderbox:

I just kicked it off now, so hopefully it'll give us some idea of the impact in the morning and I can address that before this is pulled into the server.  Does this satisfy you enough for an Ack?
