  Intel graphics corruption since upgrade to Ubuntu 14.10

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since upgrading from Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu 14.10, I have been seeing
  graphics corruption under GNOME 3 several times per day, including:

  1. Maximized windows (especially gvim) have rectangular regions of
  their titlebar totally invisible and transparent, so the contents of
  whatever window or image is behind them shows through. Easy to
  reproduce but problem disappears once a screenshot is taken :/

  2. Strange "diagonal display corruption" in firefox, usually random
  glyphs appearing on top of the website, but sometimes it is other
  "illegible data" similarly aligned in diagonal lines. Happens several
  times per day. Screenshot attached.

  3. Occasionally some glyphs from any/all apps disappear, leaving an
  "alphabet soup" type effect where only a certain proportion of letters
  in displayed text is visible. Hardest to reproduce, perhaps twice per
  week, I'll take a screenshot next time.
