Odd, I don't recall seeing it, and there's no non-spam messages in
the queue right now.

In days of old, we were able to get rebases out pretty quickly after
their upstream release.  These days, we're hindered by the kernel modesetting
stuff we're carrying.  It's closely tied to the userspace X drivers,
and isn't easy to retrofit to a different kernel.
One of the reasons we haven't pushed them as proper updates is that
getting the regressions fixed is pretty time consuming, and the limited
X/KMS manpower we have is better focused on making the F12 stuff work right,
and getting it upstream.

I really can't wait for the day that it all gets upstream, and we can
get back to the old routine of rebasing.  Until then, we're kinda stuck.
