Forwarding this bug from Ubuntu that multiple people are hitting:
compiz crash in intel_miptree_release() at intel_mipmap_tree.c:290 called by intel_process_dri2_buffer_with_separate_stencil()
Occurs right after a fresh boot on an otherwise vanilla laptop (no external displays). Others indicate their crashes occur post-boot in compiz while switching desktops, minimizing windows, etc. but we don't have stack traces for these other cases so I can't be 100% certain.
Since moving to mesa 8.x, we've had scattered reports where compiz crashes with stacktraces terminating in intel_miptree_release().
We thought updating to 8.0.1 would resolve these crashes (and perhaps they did; the frequency of reports seems lower than before). However we've still gotten a handful of people hitting it. I don't know what graphics these other folk were running; could well be Sandybridge. I have not been able to reproduce this on my own (non-Sandybridge, non-Ironlake) hardware.

I can constantly reproduce this crash by simply resizing any window with Compiz enabled and Resize plugin style set to normal (i.e., window content adjusts constantly during resize). The only requirement is to resize by a considerable amount, like doubling the size of the window. Small resizes work, though I get graphical artifacts in the resized area.
I'm using a Sandybridge desktop (i5 2400) with a 1920x1080 single monitor. I can attach the crash file if necessary.
I tried to reproduce using the specific instructions from Mihai and can't. I turned on resize, resize info, and switched default resize mode to normal. I then alt-middle-click resized various windows from big to small and back. Tested on current 8.0 and master.
Bryce and Mihai, I've created a patch that logs some extra information to stderr around the segfault location. I've applied the patch atop 8.0.1 and posted the branch:
git://people.freedesktop.org/~chadversary/mesa.git ; branch 8.0-bug-46739-log1
Could you reproduce the bug with this patch and report back with the log?

xsession-errors file with debug info
Attached .xession-errors file resulting after a crash with mesa compiled from Chad's 8.0-bug-46739-log1 git branch.
I got the same crash and filed bug 46303 a while back. I'll try applying that patch and post the log next time it happens.

Applied the branch to the ubuntu mesa and repro'd the bug.
In the log, compiz dies, as expected, immediately after this line:
Bryce and Mihai, I've pushed a new 8.0 branch   that should fix the bug. (The patch comes from nobled on bug 46303). Could you confirm the fix?
 git://freedesktop.org/~chadversary/mesa.git ; branch 8.0-bug-46739-v1
Assigning to self.

Confirming the fix. Thanks, Chad!
Awesome. Closing as dupe, anyway.
