Thank you for these packages I was looking for packages with patent-covered features (in Europe, or at least in Italy, there aren't legal problems with them) since months. On my AMD Radeon 6570 there aren't problems currently, in my free time I will try to do some tests (even on other GPUs, I have got also a couple of Intel GPUs and one or two nVidia GPUs).

12.04 mesa packages
Mesa packages for Ubuntu 12.04 are ready, I'll push them once the i965 driver is fixed to properly build due to recent build changes.

Building a driver twice with different patches it's not easy, hopefully tiling patches will be merged soon, while hiz is too experimantal and probably doesn't apply since the patches are quite old.

No, see /usr/share/doc/libgl1-mesa-dri/changelog.gz for current PPA changes.

The setting has no effect and seems obsolete.
Anyways, the security setting of /dev/dri is secure enough by default, there is no need to set anything

** Warning to intel users **
Due to a build problem I disabled building the i965 driver in mesa packages, so you'll get llvmpipe instead. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
The good news for the others is that mesa packages are now available also on Ubuntu 12.04 "precise".
