It doesn't work for me like Michal Marek, dale ritchey,

Because i've been updating like Clark Tompsett, i don't know what has Clark
Tompsett done to get it working directly without the temporary workaround that
is still working :

with or without an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file) login in as root
and run this command :
rmod i915;init 3;sleep 4;init 5;sleep 15;exit

Please Clark Tompsett could you say if you applied the patch and the way you
did it and what version of kernel ?

PS: my kernel is kernel-default-2.6.32-41.1.x86_64 or

What i did
I took a backup of the file and /boot dir
# cd /
# tar cjvf /boot /lib/mkinitrd/scripts/

# cd /lib/mkinitrd/scripts/
# patch < 0001-Fix-bogus-expansion-of-wildchar-characters-in-pci-de.patch
