I am very glad to get the feedback from you. Still some patches need to be committed later(although no new bug is reported still).
Hope you can report anything you think incorrect or abnormal after using that new driver.
For "NoAccel" segfault, I am not sure if you have tried Mart's patch in the below link:
I have given a try and it can nicely solve this bug. It is caused by the zero pointer use. Could you give a try? I think Mart know more about that.
Can you make this issue more clear for Bernie?
