Experimental re-build xorg-server

After latest -current upgrading (Mon Aug 24 19:03:07 UTC 2015), xorg-server crashed frequently. I have tried to force 'uxa' as ponce suggested, but no luck. Later USUARIONUEVO suggested to re-build xorg-server using all patches listed in Arch's repository.

So I have re-built xorg-server package for x86_64 using scripts copied from slackware's source (building script is attached below), with all patches copied from Arch's repository. You can download the experimental package at here. MD5 is
So far xorg-server on my laptop is stable (no crash more than 5 hours). Thanks to ponce and USUARIONUEVO!

This is a known bug, which has been discussed at here and upstream. So I have also built another comparison package w/o patching this bug for testing/reproducing this bug. You can download it at here. MD5 is
Related patches in Arch's repository are:
# fix FS#45009, merged upstream
patch -Np1 -i ../0001-glamor-make-current-in-prepare-paths.patch
patch -Np1 -i ../0001-os-make-sure-the-clientsWritable-fd_set-is-initializ.patch
Notice that, I did not separate xephyr, xnest, and xvfb from xorg-server, as Pat did. So use this build in caution. Later after, Pat upgrading xorg-server, you may need to re-install all xorg-server related official packages.
