If you are currently running 4.0.1, I would seriously recommend skipping
minor revision.  I have run into a multitude of problems with it, and am now
back right where I started.

One, is the lack of DRM support for the matrox cards anymore.  The kernel
module has a version number in it, which is less than that required by the
DRM system.  It won't insert the module until you update this--so it appears
that no one is actually using it.

Another, is that there seem to be delays in the event stream, making
interactive performance terrible.  One example: When I go to move a window,
start dragging it, moving the outline as I go.  Then I unclick, yet the
is still visible.  I actually have to move the mouse more to get the window
move to take effect.  There are other cases, where it appears to lose events
all together--like clicking on windows to raise them, or with menus.

There were also a handful of other things, that I don't recall offhand now.
These problems were observed on a 4.2-STABLE box, not too long ago.  I have
compiled the source from scratch (with and without matrox DRM stuff), as
as using the stock 4.0.2_5 package, both of which behave the same.
