Intel 965 (GMA 3000) Linux Driver Fixes

Two commits to the Intel X.Org driver address previous issues with this open-source driver and the Intel 965 (GMA 3000/X3000) Chipsets. Copying of memory blocks of the sf_kernel when a mask is needed has been corrected by David Airlie. Intel 965 Chipsets with the latest Intel X.Org git code can now handle composite acceleration to A8 destinations. There is, however, high overhead with the Intel compositing setup that results in a text-rendering slowdown. All of the latest Intel X.Org information is available from the xf86-video-intel git.
