I did that some time ago, and was very hopeful ;-), but it didn't make
any difference [0].

The patch in question fixes problems encountered for applications using
`mremap ()'.  In the case of X, it may be a lower-level, specific
problem (I'd have said DMA or some such, but I am not familiar at all
with how X interacts with the kernel and video RAM).
