2.4.1 will break for kernels after 2.6.27 and already doesnt work for G45 in most cases.
Binary package hint: xserver-
2.6.27-git currently contains some fixes to the memory management of G45 intel cards. Unfortunately those also require an newer userspace/xorg driver (>=2.4.98).
Considering that release is approaching I do not really suggest, although it would be comfortable for me ;-), upgrading to an unstable xorg driver release, but perhaps backporting the G45 specific fixes would be sensible?
Considering that Keith Packard judged the G45 support to be utterly broken and that this would stop testing all 2.6.28-rc? kernels...
Thus this bugreport is more to raise awareness about this issue than anything else.
