Thanks!  Probably about one third of our diffs is X diffs, so this
shaves off a lot.

Right.  99% of the ARM X diffs is just ExclusiveArch changes, and
there I kind of took the blunt approach and just used the set of
servers that alpha uses.

The only two 'real' patches in the X area for ARM are:

1/ xorg-x11-proto-devel not installing XLbx.h and friends anymore,
   causing libXext to fail to build (not ARM-specific, and I'm
   pretty sure that this would not be an issue anymore post-FC6.)

2/ xorg-x11-server needs some minor ifdef changes for ARM[*], which
   have been floating around since at least the FC2 days, but I must
   admit that I'm not sure what the upstream status is of this.

   I.e. this is one of the very very few diffs in our set that is
   not related to Fedora packaging of which I'm not sure whether we
   ever submitted it upstream or not.

(I'll get the rest of our patches rebased to F8 asap.)

Thanks for your help!
