Thinks have been screwed up for longer than that. I started seeing regressions

but I am not too confident of that now, but it could still happen.

There is still infrastructure development going on. Airlie just posted another
update on things he has been working on within the last day. Phoronix
also has lots of news tidbits on video driver / X related stuff.
