Default 185.19: VDPAU, IGP, and turbocache

Just as an FYI, in the 185.19 release, we made some changes for systems with *integrated* graphics to enable the usage of turbocache. These changes should reduce/remove the out-of-resources problems people have been having when using configurations with small amounts of video memory, on affected systems.

Note, there are:

* Systems using desktop GPUs on plugin cards. This change does not apply here.
* Systems using desktop/mobile GPUs as MXM cards, or soldered onto the motherboard (especially laptops with higher end graphics). This change does not apply here.
* Systems using integrated graphics (integrated into the chipset; i.e. MCP). This fix *only* applies to these systems.

Is there a chance of a fix for mobile chips.

I've got an Inspiron 1420 with a 256MB 8400M GS GPU that can't handle 1080 H.264 streams.

Right now, it looks fairly unlikely that discrete chips (whether mobile or not) will gain turbocache support.

Still, with 256M, you should be able to play HD movies. It's just a matter of what else is using video RAM; try a lighter weight desktop environment, don't run other applications, try a bare X server, etc.
