FWIW, I just applied this patch on my AlphaStation 255/233, which has
been giving me random hangs under X. It certainly breaks xdm (it barfs
with lots of entries of

X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  45 (X_OpenFont)
  Serial number of failed request:  29
  Current serial number in output stream:  30

in /var/log/xdm.log) and some other X apps aren't looking right either.

/proc/cpuinfo for reference:
