1.223.1. RHBA-2010:0203: bug fix and enhancement update

An updated xorg-x11-drv-fbdev package that fixes a bug is now available.
The xorg-x11-drv-fbdev package provides a driver for Linux kernel framebuffer devices for use with the X.Org implementation of the X Window System. This driver is normally only used when a native X.Org driver is not available.
* the framebuffer driver had a bug relating to CopyArea performance, which led to the system appearing to run extremely slowly. The performance bug was corrected in an upstream version of the driver and the sluggish performance is no longer seen. (BZ#466163)
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated xorg-x11-drv-fbdev package, which resolves this issue.
