There was just a thread in the devel list about an update to llvm and
mesa that was getting pushed into the 31 beta. I think the
justification was support for that chipset. Unfortunately, I just
deleted that thread before I saw this email. I'm not clear on whether
the updates were in testing or not. Try there first, otherwise check in
koji for the latest mesa and llvm updates or wait until it makes it to
testing or release.
I updated to the new versions of mesa and llvm from updates-testing this
morning and these indeed fixed the problem and I now get to the desktop.
I haven't done any extensive testing yet (I plan to really set up the
system over the weekend) but my first impression is that things look
good and at least the desktop feels really snappy.
