I for one would not commit any hacks that involve overwriting the
standard open-source mga 2d driver with the matrox-supplied one. If
there are improvements in any feature in the matrox-supplied one, that
improvement needs to be identified and integrated upstream, rather than
continue supplying a buggy-in-other-ways Matrox-supplied driver.
The diffs between 4.3.0 and matrox's driver were relatively small and
mostly whitespace. It should not be hard for someone who cares to
identify which missing chunk of diff is causing the problem.
