xorg updates for testing

Hasso Tepper has some xorg updates to fix problems he’s seen with the intel video driver.  The versions of these packages in pkgsrc are old enough that the changes can’t be committed ‘upstream’ to xorg, so he’s attacking the problem from the opposite direction and upgrading the software.

He reported significant EXA performance improvements, so it’s definitely worthwhile.  It’s tested on DragonFly but will probably benefit other pkgsrc-using platforms too.

  1. I wonder what bugs are halting a modular-xorg-server upgrade in pkgsrc? I’d like to test these patches, unfortunately it would take five days to compile xorg on my old machines, so I’ll have to wait patiently for binary packages.
