X doesn't properly start. I think there is an additional dependency in my
case that my old LCD display doesn't send an identifier that newer ones do.

I had problems when first upgrading to F8 that were solved with the -2 update.
But when I upgraded to -5 then I had the problem reoccur. I didn't do anything
to confirm it was really a regression and not a new bug. I just reverted to
using -2.
