Bug Description

The i915/intel-agp modules fail to load on newer sandybridge GPU's because the pci id's are missing. It only binds to preproduction devices currently but the shipping id's have been pushed upstream. For the kernel these are the 3 relevant commits

Support the extended physical addressing bits on Sandybridge (4fefe435 is dependent on this one):

Adds sandybridge mobile D0 stepping support:

Adds more variants:

xserver-xorg-video-intel also needs updating to recognize these new devices and the commits are upstream
