Bug Description

The i915_hsw module in the quantal kernel is based on i915 from 3.7, but it makes sense to rebase it so it's on the same level as i915 on the raring kernel. 3.8 fixes many bugs in the driver, and has been tested a lot via a dkms package for oem systems.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
