broken icons in systray
If you know KDE 4, you probably know about the broken systray icons: the background is garbled.
With current xf86-video-intel 2.6.3, the systray also does not show any icons. It switches between not showing anything and showing garbage (without distinguishing between fore- and background).
This was fine with 2.5.1. I bisected it to 6c0ca1676bf60529dd331cc739abdf68fa9e918d

Thanks for the bisect. So it's caused by:

commit 6c0ca1676bf60529dd331cc739abdf68fa9e918d (patch)
Don't forget the new state bos in check_aperture.
They're tiny so it shouldn't have been a problem, but play it safe. This is another <5% loss on top of the previously reported value, bringing the whole series to about 8%.
Might check with:

Fix XV with non-GEM kernels by allocating a larger fake bufmgr.
After syncing to git master, it's working fine. :)
(I do not set the bug to resolved/fixed, because I do not know your policies for doing that)
The policy is, if it's fixed upstream, go ahead and mark it fixed :)
Thanks for testing. I'm pretty sure it was that commit.
