I put you on the cc list, but wasn't sure if I should just outright assign
it to you.

I didn't commit this fix since I didn't have the hardware to verify I wasn't
breaking the driver, and don't have enough experience with the drivers & DRI
to feel comfortable checking in changes without testing or review.   In areas
of the code I'm more familiar with, or when it's fairly obvious the fix is
correct, I generally do commit my fixes.  Perhaps if we started more actively
using the "request review" feature in the new bugzilla version we could get
past this hurdle.
