Unfortunately we don't have the manpower to get to all X reports, and
rawhide reports tend to take priority.

Certainly you had a bug with your particular adapter, but all the
release notes are saying is that _in general_ KMS was implemented by
default for Intel adapters in F11.

In theory it would be better to leave the report open, in case the fix
can be backported to F11. In practice I think the extent of changes to
the intel driver and X server in F12 make it unlikely :/
