Updated patch

There are multiple debug levels for intel driver, this patch adds use flags for basic level and full debug.

There are also memory and pixmap debug levels, I can add them also if needed.

A debug flag has been added to the live ebuild in the x11 overlay.

full-debug is a bit more complex, it needs to pass --enable-debug=full to configure.
Comment 8 Rémi Cardona (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-02-03 22:06:10 UTC
I just synced the overlay ebuild into portage. So we have a debug USE flag there too (for 2.99.909). Is this enough or should we aim for debug-full?
Comment 9 Mike Auty (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-02-03 22:07:56 UTC
I think that debug is good enough.  Enabling debug-full (I believe) would create huge Xorg.0.logs (as in several hundred megabytes), so to avoid people having this happen to them without realizing it, we should leave it at that.  Thanks very much for getting it all sorted so quickly!  5:)
