[Debian-eeepc-devel] Screen flickers in X with 2.6.31

This is just a short heads-up for those planning to use Linux 2.6.31 on
the original Eee (and other 915GM systems). 

The upstream i915 driver have a bug which will cause massive screen
flickering in X. Fortunately, there's already a patch available, but it
didn't make it for 2.6.31. 

I filed bug 545377 for this, so hopefully the problem will be fixed
before 2.6.31 hits unstable.
