Assuming you mean this branch:

I compiled the branch head and gave it a spin. KMS performance is noticeably
better compared to 2.6.32(+drm2.6.33)-kernel in Ubuntu. However I only had to
open 20-25 windows and do some jiggly Compiz effects to cause:
1. Severe audio skipping/crackling whenever something was moving, changing,
minimizing, maximizing, etc.
2. Wireless was extremely unstable, in fact I add to boot back into Lucid
kernel to write this comment, because it kept falling down. Of course, that
might just be the kernel itself, I don't know.

Conclusion is that nothing is better on my hardware with this kernel, except
the KMS performance (Compiz feels somewhat snappier when window count is high). 

So it's back to good old UMS and DFS-corruption for me :) :/ ...
