[PC-BSD Testing] Yet another Xorg change to come

In addition to the newly minted FBSD 8.0-RC2 that is out, X.org Foundation
has announced Release 7.5 of the X Window System, Version 11
(X11R7.5-Release).
http://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.5/doc/RELNOTES.html#AEN620

There are new Intel drivers.  With HAL deprecated, configuration of input
devices via HAL *.fdi files may not be supported in future Xorg server
releases.  HAL will likely be replaced with something else (DeviceKit?)

I cannot think that Kris will be excited as he is hard at work developing
PCBSD 8.x and the last thing he needs at this time is yet another X.org
change or HAL change to complicate his work.

Good luck Kris.
