This is the 2.0RC2 release of the Intel graphics driver.

Major changes in this release include moving more code to the X Server,
fixing 3D performance regressions, fixing Mac Mini DPMS, potential fixes
for some LVDS issues on 855 and 915, fixes for many segfaults, and the
off-by-default pageflipping support.
