When running either xf86-video-intel git master or the recently release 126.96.36.199 on a non-GEM non-KMS kernel (2.6.26, specifically), I get what I think can pretty accurate be called text insanity. Some text doesn't appear, some text is the wrong color, and some text gets fixed when various things are done to it (like selecting it). Insanity abounds.
Possible to git bisect where the badness happen?
I'll see what I can do.
Behold, the guilty party:
Dontcha hate it when it's a performance fix. :-/

Picture of the insanity
Here's a picture. As you can see, a lot of text is missing, and Firefox's title bar text is the wrong color (white instead of black, most of the color mixups are white/black mixups).
Fixed in current master. Tested on T61 with 2.6.26 kernel.

Don't count vertex buffer in second aperture size check
With batch flush notify vertex buffer will be unreferenced,
so don't count it in later aperture check. Also adding
uninitialized vertex buffer check in batch flush notify.
Confirmed, issue is not reproducible with current git master. Thanks!
