I observe heavy flickering and glitches in chromium after the update of xf86-video-intel to 1:2.99.917+544+g8b8c9a3-1

The (relevant?) package versions are:

chromium 48.0.2564.97-1
xf86-video-intel 1:2.99.917+544+g8b8c9a3-1
mesa 11.1.1-1
KDE Plasma 5.5.4

Downgrading xf86-video-intel to 1:2.99.917+519+g8229390-1 fixes the issue.
This task depends upon

Please report this upstream! Sounds like a regression.

I think it was this bug

which is now fixed in the master branch of the xf86-video-intel git repository. I compiled the latest master myself and it seems the issue is resolved.

If you could update the package it would be appreciated.
