Unless I missed something, Intel doesn't endorse the Gallium drivers
for their hardware (i915g, i965g) yet. However, for the AMD and
nouveau teams, those drivers (r300g, r600g, nvfx, nv50) are the way
forward, so I'd hope that they work.

When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir? ~ Keynes
