Bug#598528: unstable on GNU/kFreeBSD

Package: xserver-xorg-video-intel
Version: 2:2.9.1-4
Severity: grave
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd

This driver behaves unreliably on GNU/kFreeBSD.  After a while of running it
(usually 1 or 2 h) screen stops updating (I didn't determine whether X
crashed, but disk and network activity indicate there's no kernel crash).

Same version of xserver-xorg-video-intel on same hardware, running on GNU/Linux
doesn't exhibit this problem.

As a workaround I switched to xserver-xorg-video-vesa.  I think unless this
can be fixed it'd be better not to provide this driver on GNU/kFreeBSD squeeze,
so that users will fallback to -vesa and at least get a working setup.  Also,
support for non-Linux is discontinued on later versions anyway, much regretably.

Perhaps debian-bsd (CCed) can comment or provide advice on this.
