thanks for the reply. Indeed there may be  some confusion about the version that is actually getting used!

I built the driver from git , today, and followed the instructions, but I don't know how to probe the running X to ask actually which driver it is using. Where is the version number given? by 'intel driver' do you mean the thing compiled from the sources in  xf86-video-intel? Can I find the version string in Xorg.0.log, I see nothing even close to that (module version 14.94.94 ? ) 

       (II) LoadModule: "intel"
       (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
       (II) Module intel: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
          compiled for, module version = 14.94.94
          Module class: X.Org Video Driver
          ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 1.2

I'm just trying to repeat the steps of building the  xf86-video-intel but encountering new problems... I am not sure what changed but it cannot find local_xf86Rename.h , I do not recall this problem earlier.

Is this meaningful? Thanks
