Since xf86-video-intel 2.9.1 has been released, nominations here will be considered for future 2.9.x bugfix releases, if we do any.
For each fix, please provide a short description of the bug being fixed in terms that make sense to the user, (which I will put in the release notes). The commit message is rarely the right thing here, (since it will often refer to internals). Often the title of a bug report is exactly what's wanted, so if your commit message already includes a bugzilla URL then that's likely sufficient.
As an example of what I'd like for the descriptions:
What I don't want: Fix uninitialized pScrnPtr value. What I do want: Fix crash on X server start with multiple outputs.
Proposed for 2.9.x (once these are merged, move them down to the next list)
