breaks my EXA accelerated xserver and results in this image when starting x:

Xorg.0.log contains:
(EE) intel(0): [drm] failure adding irq handler

commit 1063ef90845d7c84f4799ac34bd23ef37860bdc0 is fine.
Comment 1 Tobias Hain 2008-09-05 03:18:42 UTC
a none GEM intel driver (e.g. version 2.4.2) works fine with drm.ko and i915.ko of this commit.
Comment 2 Gordon Jin 2008-09-07 20:30:24 UTC
Tobias, thanks for the finding.

So it's caused by below commit in anholt's gem kernel:
author	Kristian Høgsberg <krh@redhat.com>	2008-08-20 15:04:27
committer	Eric Anholt <eric@anholt.net>	2008-09-03 14:43:15

parent	1063ef90845d7c84f4799ac34bd23ef37860bdc0 (diff)
i915 gem: install and uninstall irq handler in entervt and leavevt ioctls.
Comment 3 Gordon Jin 2008-09-08 06:57:56 UTC
my team can reproduce this on GM965, G33 and 945G.

This issue is fixed in master branch ,but not in 2.5-branch .
Comment 7 Gordon Jin 2008-09-12 00:26:59 UTC
So it needs to be cherry-picked to 2.5-branch.
