Good to know that a new intel driver version is available.

I've tried the new 7.5 xorg  version and I still have difficulties
with my atom based machine  :

asus:tmp/>dmesg | grep agp
agp0: <Intel 82945G (945G GMCH) SVGA controller> on vgapci0
agp0: detected 7932k stolen memory
agp0: aperture size is 256M
asus:tmp/>uname -a
FreeBSD asus.hpch.net 8.0-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p2 #3: Wed
Jan 13 14:49:40 CET 2010
root at asus.hpch.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386
asus:tmp/>dmesg | grep CPU
CPU: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU  230   @ 1.60GHz (1596.01-MHz 686-class CPU)
p4tcc0: <CPU Frequency Thermal Control> on cpu0

On this machine the symptom are a 30s to 1mn freeze then switching
from console mode to graphic (when xdm start), and same hang when
doing graphic stuff like dvd play, or using xv or qiv.

Yesterday I've try to compile xorg 7.5 and xfce4. Same symptom.

The only workaround I've found is to disable acpi
'hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" in /boot/loader.conf
And even with that, I've a corrupted screen.

Vesa is not an option, because it can not recognize my 1920x1200 screen.

Is there any chance that the 2.9 intel driver behave better ?
