It looks like Fedora doesn't patch the -intel driver anymore, instead they patch xserver to fiddle with the defaults.

Given the comment and commit description, I'm guessing that list is everything older than gen4 (haswell) not already defaulting to something else.

I can't find any attempts to upstream the patch... Also, given the different formatting, what would be the proper way to bring this into OE? Rewrite the commit message, leave Author field intact and add a link?

From memory there are some chipsets which the Intel driver *is* better on.  I recommend we look at the Fedora patches for the intel driver, I believe that massively reduces the chips that the intel driver will be the primary driver for. We can then continue to ship both and not break anything.

    Most distros have switched to this, and we're seeing better results in
    some areas as well. E.g., on a NUC6CAYS the x11perf -aa10text and
    -rgb10text results see a 20x increase.
