Testing on bug 304871 indicates for 855, dropping Legacy3D does the trick.

xserver-xorg-video-intel (2:2.6.3-0ubuntu4) jaunty; urgency=low

  * Add 117_quirk_thinkpad_x30.patch:
    - Pipe-A quirk to fix lid close freeze on Thinkpad X30
      (LP: #304614)
  * Add 118_drop_legacy3d.patch:
    - Remove Legacy3D as a user-configurable option and force fallback to
      legacy fixed textures when GEM is not being used. Fixes "couldn't
      bind memory for BO backbuffer" issue on at least i855 chipsets.
