And from kernel changelogs:
* Fri Sep 25 2009 Chuck Ebbert <cebbert redhat com>
- Disable the GEM graphics manager on i686 PAE kernels
  (fixes modesetting on Intel graphics.)

* Fri Aug 14 2009 Chuck Ebbert <cebbert redhat com>
- Linux
- Dropped drm-intel-tv-fix.patch, merged in -stable now.

 Wed Aug 12 2009 Kyle McMartin <kyle redhat com>
- DRM patch sync-up with F-11-2.6.29.y, ABI probably isn't right yet though...
 - drm-modesetting-radeon.patch
 - drm-nouveau.patch
 - drm-no-gem-on-i8xx.patch
 - drm-i915-resume-force-mode.patch
 - drm-intel-big-hammer.patch
 - drm-intel-gen3-fb-hack.patch
 - drm-intel-hdmi-edid-fix.patch
 - drm-modesetting-radeon-fixes.patch
 - drm-radeon-new-pciids.patch
 - drm-dont-frob-i2c.patch
 - drm-intel-tv-fix.patch
 - drm-radeon-cs-oops-fix.patch
 - drm-pnp-add-resource-range-checker.patch
 - drm-i915-enable-mchbar.patch
- The rest were merged upstream.

  Anyway, I understand you sentiment. I was bitten by Intel graphics bug (EQ overflowing)
which wasn't fixed for all F11 life. Things are much better in F12 now.
But still, without any bug number we have nothing to talk about.
