Ok... my bad.
I'm all for the GPL'd driver but if they could provide a working
driver in the mean time, the better. The best Linux 3D driver out
there is Nvidia's one, which is a blob but works. Intel has been
putting some efforts into the open source driver but it is nothing
more than a disaster right now. Each time they update the driver
something important breaks.

As far as the kernel team at the OLPC knows, what is missing to
support the VX855? The 3D driver and the DRM patches to the kernel?

later date.
