   I replied to the list with the results I had, which were that I
_thought_ it was fixed, but X still wouldn't start for me. I haven't
seen any replies from anyone else.

   I now have X working using the framebuffer driver, so it seems that
these patches do indeed fix the problem (I couldn't even do that before).

   Understood. It actually led me to realize the probable cause of the
remaining X problem I have with this machine, in that fbdev works but
the glint driver doesn't load. I've submitted a separate bug report on
that one (#284111), since it's clearly not related to the mmap
