Bug description:
  After upgrading to Wily, I'm experiencing severe graphics corruption
  in KDE/Plasma. My graphics card is "01:00.0 VGA compatible controller:
  NVIDIA Corporation GT218M [NVS 3100M] (rev a2)" and I use the nouveau
  drivers. My problem matches that of Freedesktop.org bug 92504 [1] and
  applying the patch from its comment 23 [2] seems to alleviate my

  After correcting line numbers, the patch applies cleanly to the Wily
  kernel. I do not understand the nouveau code or the patch, but it
  seems the patch could easily be backported to correct a severe problem
  that surely affects a lot of users.
