You might be right, but you might not be. I don't suppose you looked at that
bug, because the bug is actually upstream, about gfxchips installed in PCs on
which I have no version of Debian installed to confirm or deny broader impact
than on just Mageia and Fedora. Without any stronger reason to add Debian, both
the machines and the gfxchips are too old for me to bother trying.
