First, I tried just rebooting and that worked so the problem would
appear to have been contiguous memory. I have upgraded to a recent
8-stable including your patch and there is no obvious regression (ie X
still starts with DRI enabled). I will leave X off for a couple of
weeks and see if it will still start after RAM has fragmented a bit.
Thanks for the quick response.
