Thanks for your work on this, with the recent commits to this and agp_810 in
-current my card comes up and is detected and i915.ko  and drm.ko load.

Testing this and drm in X, generates a huge interrupt storm on irq 11. 
Things work, but are slow as molasses with the system 75% in interrupt

Has anyone else seen this on their 915 systems?
