Comment 169 for bug 351186

I would like confirmation that this is a work-around rather than a fix,
as something that reduces 3D performance, doesn't sound like moving forward.

Is this something that we put up with for now (to get a reasonably working desktop) until a real fix comes along?
Or is this considered a workaround?

This is a serious question. I would like to know what is the expectation of others here, who are testing this patch, so i can get an idea of what to expect from the future (however far forward that future may be).
