You're talking about the old version. The diff for Xorg is smaller than 
for Xserver. It barely touches fbpict at all. The new patch doesn't 
merge the changes between xserver or xorg it just adds the new Render 
implementation so there are differences between fbpict's in both 
servers (oh, and yes it does compile with mmx code).


Errors have been made. Others will be blamed.
