You dont set that. drm/linux-core is out-dated.
You get correct drm.ko and i915.ko from latest kernel or from for-airlied
branch of eric's tree.

Look at Eric's LJ first case as You
dont need dri2.
And after clone switch to for-airlied branch which is a bit more stable.

I dont know if master xf86-intel does not need xserver 1.6 (here 1.6), but
there is also origin/xf86-video-intel-2.5-branch which should compile fine
with xserver 1.5.3 which is in debian/experiemtal packages and it should be
possible to install it on Ubuntu.
