The Intel drivers have always been wonky at best. Unless you're on
NVidia hardware, I wouldn't hold my breath. Some progress has been made
but the KMS, LibDRM and Xorg work that's gone into 9.1 and the *slight*
update to the Intel driver has not yet caught up to where Linux-land is.
It will be a long time still before Ivy Bridge/Sandy Bridge-era stuff is
supported. We could all hope that things stabilize more in RC2 but I
would surmise that BSD 10 is where you'll likely see that working well
enough to use.
