Yes, it is.

Hrm, exactly what I want to avoid, updating openSUSE Factory quite often 
already is experimental enough for me on a production machine, but I'm 
using Kernel:HEAD there, which is currently some recent 2.6.38-rc and I 
should be 2.6.39-rc once the merge window has closed.

Still, do you know something I don't on my error that you suggest that? 
Chris Wilson on intel-gfx was somewhat clueless as to why this happens...

That sounds good.
Can I download your standalone driver in a git clone or similar way? 
Pulling the files one by one over http doesn't sound ideal to me. :)
