Mmm, I guess you are overestimating the consequences of this bug: it
disables a couple of things, but you should get an Xorg server working.
If all you get is a black screen, you're most probably hit by the "we
don't like showing a mouse cursor" crazyness of Xorg people, that is you
have a working X server, but you didn't start any client (e.g. use
xinit /usr/bin/xterm to start one).
