Hi, it seems that there's a huge memory leakage in xf86-video-intel from git.

For some reason, it eats all available swap in few minutes and system becomes 
unresponsible. As you can see on attached screenshot, all swap is eaten, but 
there's still a lot free real memory available.

Also want to mention that konsole (kde application) is really slow with 
xf86-video-intel from git, it takes ~5 secs to draw mc, with cpu wasted in 
wait state (also visible on screenshot)

I'm using x11-stack from git, 2.6.28-gentoo-r1.
Bug is not reproducible on xf86-video-intel-2.6.1
