8xx-enable-shadow.patch sort of breaks the kde blur effect on my intel laptop. It sometimes works when, but the next time it may not work again and only the blur effect is painted, not the content itself. Was working fine in xf86-video-intel 2.13.0-1 and is caused by the patch mentioned.

If I'm not mistaken this is a gen5 gpu, so I'm not sure how it is affected by this patch, but somehow it is.
This task depends upon
