After upgrading from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 there are some graphics errors (looks texture related) in OpenGL applications (e.g. OpenArena, foobillard).
It is working normally (without those errors) when switching back to 22.214.171.124.
Can you bisect what commit is problematic?
I just bisected it and found the problematic commit:
3645e7665f285b51fbb5aa73a255b858abe72cfc is the first bad commit

When reversing this commit in 126.96.36.199, everything is running normally again.
This is actually a bug in mesa. It's fixed by this commit:
Unfortunately, there's no way to support both old and new mesa at the same time properly because the group size calculation happens when the GPU is initialized prior to any userspace libs loading. You can't reconfigure the memory controller per client and setting the group size wrong means you won't be able to use new features like 2D tiling.
This has been applied to 2.6.35 longterm, is it appropriate there given that it breaks userspace? Ubuntu started getting a large amount of bug reports about things being broken after updating to 188.8.131.52.
Solution is to update mesa, see comment #4 for why it can't be fixed properly otherwise, closing this bug
