Do you see crashes or slowness with the latest driver bits from git?

Bugs and performance problems can be reported at bugs.freedesktop.org.  
Whether there's a friendly interface to the bug reporting system is really a 
distro specific issue...

You don't need to use i915_resolution with the 2.x series of drivers; they'll 
set modes w/o BIOS support.  The max resolution on a given screen is 
2048x2048 for i915 chips iirc.
