Whoops.  And usually I'm such a stickler for correct terminology.  I'll
update the template.

Because I am inconsistent about which ones I'm mentioning.  Strictly
speaking, I should redescribe all the patches because they've been
renumbered, but that strikes me as excessive.

Because I forgot about it, and don't know where it is.

Gotta build *static* libraries with this flag so *shared* libs won't
break...got it.  I'll dig around in xc/config/cf/linux.cf and see if
there's something I can diddle for that.

I'm not sure which would be a greater mark of insanity: wanting to
understand why, or not wanting to.

Okay, I'll grep through there.

Thanks for the feedback!

Do you want an xserver-xfree86 debconf question for "UseFBDev"?  I only
need to ask if [ -d /dev/fb ], correct?
