Apparently, Jesse's last-minute fix that made it into xf86-video-intel
2.7.0 requires a corresponding fix in the kernel, (which as of yesterday
was in Eric's tree but not quite into Linus' tree yet---but it might be
there by now, I haven't checked yet.)

So there are some tricky dependencies here that can be hard to get
right. Hopefully everyone will have a nice, robust driver when all the
dust settles. And for now, people on older kernels might need to revert
something in the driver.

I'm sorry we released things in such a delicate state.
