Thanks! But it seems to be fore Intel based GPU's.
I guess it's not particularly obvious that the focus of the _article_ is
on Intel, while the _development_ focus is on all three of the
mainstream gpu drivers.
I've been using the modesetting driver on all hardware that it supports
in all distros that include server 1.17.0 or newer since before that
article was written in July. Jessie's server is 1.16.4, but it does
offer the pre-incorporation version as a separate
xserver-xorg-video-modesetting .deb that seems to work just as well, as
long as it's supported by the gfxchip.

There appears to be some sort of modeset support for nvidia. How to use
AND keep my nvidia goodies. ??
