In my experience, there is no point in bringing in a more recent kernel
package until 2.6.30 is released which includes drm and video driver
fixes required by the latest Xorg packages although the latest 2.6.2902
package enabled 3D rendering again in the latest Xorg packages in Sid,
at least for the Radeon chipset.
