 xfree86 (4.2.1-6pre7v1) unstable; urgency=low
   * patch #000_stolen_from_HEAD:
       + XRenderFreeGlyphs wasn't sending the glyphset. (Keith Packard)
       + CompositeGlyphs functions were re-using overwritten data and trashing
         the output buffer. (Keith Packard)
       + CompositeText{8,16,32} weren't switching glyphsets at the right time.
         (Keith Packard) (Closes: #181815)
       + Was miscomputing request length for String16 and String32.  (Keith
       + Render uses int for 32 bits; Xlib uses long. This matters on Alpha.
         (Keith Packard)
       Workaround for BIOSes which force 1MB stolen memory, and agpgart related
       fix (#5300, Abraham vd Merwe). (Closes: #168469)
   * patch #000_stolen_from_HEAD_savage_driver:
     + (savage_video): Remove whitespace in front of pre-processor directives
       (Marc La France)
     + (savage_cursor.c,savage_dga.c,savage_driver.c,savage_driver.h):
       - Fixed VBE EDID read: due to a missing register setting read ended in
         endless loop on certain systems (Egbert Eich).
       - Savage driver: disable HW cursor on stretched LCD displays, let
         SaveScreen and DGA test if HW cursor is on before disabling/reenabling
         it (Egbert Eich).
     + (savage_driver.c):
        - Initializing clock ranges in several drivers to get rid of the
          annoying 'scaled from 0.0 MHz' message in xf86PrintModes() (Egbert
        - fixed typo in savage driver (Egbert Eich)
        - Reinstate the VBEInit() call in the savage driver's PreInit().  This
          appears to fix a problem on some Savage MX platforms (#5649, Mike
          Harris). (Closes: #182788)
   * patch #000_stolen_from_HEAD_xtt:
     + (xttfuncs.c): removed extraneous hunk of patch that grabbed change to
       font renderer registration, for which the support code hasn't been
       backported (Closes: #182687)
     + (xttcconv.c): Fix an "xtt" font backend module crash that shows up on
       Linux/PPC, related to an invalid code converter module being loaded
       because of a broken string comparison in xttconv.c (#A.1647, Chisato
       Yamauchi, Daisuke MASATSUNA). (Closes: #182835)
   * patch #049: new; remove duplicate XShmGetEventBase() prototype from XShm.h
     (Closes: #182727)
   * patch #910: new; change X server's "can't find default font" and "can't
     find cursor font" error messages to whack users with a big fat clue
   * debian/*.conffiles: deleted; generation of these files is now handled
     automatically by dh_installdeb when DH_COMPAT >= 4
   * debian/*.debugfiles: renamed to *.install
   * debian/control: bump Standards-Version from 3.5.7 to 3.5.8
   * debian/local/FAQ:
     - removed reference to XFree86 FAQ; in the words of upstream
       <URL:http://www.xfree86.org/FAQ/>, "The old XFree86 FAQ has been removed
       because it is too out of date to be useful."
     - added new question: "I just upgraded the X server and it doesn't work;
       also, I'm using Matrox's proprietary "mga_hal" driver module or NVidia's
       proprietary "nvidia" driver module; what's going on?"
     - added new question: "I'm using a Macintosh, and while the keyboard works
       correctly on a virtual terminal, in X it's all messed up.  What's the
   * debian/local/XFree86-FAQ.html: deleted; see above
   * debian/local/xterm.faq.html: updated from revision 1.75 to 1.77
   * debian/po/ru.po: updated Russian debconf template translations (thanks,
     Serge Winitzki) (Closes: #182701)
   * debian/rules:
     - bump DH_COMPAT from 2 to 4; this means that, among other things,
       dh_installdeb creates DEBIAN/conffiles files for me, ensuring they stay
       in sync with what is shipped (Closes: #182505)
     - remove calls to dh_undocumented
     - add calls to dh_install
     - comment out hand-rolled "idempotency" code, since dh_install and dh_link
       behave idempotently when DH_COMPAT=4 (thanks, Joey Hess)
     - restructure, clean up, and add comments to section that defines
       variables for use in controlling the upstream build environment
       + use dpkg-parsechangelog to get the version number of the source
       + fix (and rewrite) the logic that determines whether this is an
         official package build
       + only define the BuilderEMailAddr Imake variable if we're doing an
         official package build
     - expand @OFFICIAL_BUILD@ from $(OFFICIAL_BUILD) in maintainer scripts, as
       we do with @SOURCE_VERSION@ from $(SOURCE_VERSION)
     - stop generating and shipping the XFree86 FAQ (see above)
   * debian/shell-lib.sh:
     - internal_errormsg(): expand the message that is spewed, but only utter
       it if the package was part of an official build
     - check_symlinks_and_bomb(): given the past year's worth of reports to
       debian-x, it appears that this function only ever generates errors when
       someone is installing very old or non-policy-compliant packages on the
       system at the same time XFree86 is being upgraded.  Simplified the error
       messages and called new function find_culprits() when this happens.
     - find_culprits(): new function that finds Policy-violating overlaps with
       the XFree86 packages' symlinks, and reports these to the user
   * debian/xfree86-common.config.in:
     - change test for official package version to just use the new
       $OFFICIAL_BUILD variable
   * debian/xfree86-common.doc-base.xfree86-faq: deleted; see above
   * debian/xserver-common.README.Debian: updated to remove mention of XFree86
     FAQ (see above)
   * debian/xserver-xfree86.config.in:
     - treat an empty /proc/fb the same as a nonexistent one, and clarify the
       corresponding debugging message (Closes: #182704)
     - parse the contents of /proc/fb (first reported framebuffer device only)
       so as to treat "VESA" and "OFfb" framebuffer types the same as no kernel
       framebuffer at all, since these (and possible some other) framebuffer
       types do not work with the XFree86 X server's fbdevhw interface; also
       clarify the corresponding debug message (thanks, Michel Dänzer)
