Ok, now that agp seems to be working... I have created a port for the
2.9.1 version of the Intel driver.  You will need to uninstall the
existing intel driver and install this one.  You still won't have drm,
but should be a good bit better than vesa...


Please let me know how it goes.  You will likely want to use UXA
acceleration with this driver.
