    I've just tried to backport xorg-xserver 1.18.1 to debian Jessie but it needs to upgrade systemd.
    That seems not to be a good idea...

    Ubuntu still runs X.Org Server as root.
    That is insecure.
    lightdm doesn't support root-less X, so use a DM that does

    KMS runs X rootless. One of the reasons nvidia-modrpobe has to be installed to make OpenCl work in Ubuntu.
