thx for fixing vbox.

As this is Cauldron, I think we shoold just move x11-server-1.12 and
the rebuild drivers from */updates_testing back into {core,nonfree}/release
then push fglrx.

updated status:

- major driver that were tested and works OK:
 o video: fbdev intel nouveau nvidia radeon vesa
 o input: evdev keyboard mouse synaptics wacom

- major driver that do not work:
 o video: fglrx

- minor driver that would be nice to test:
 o video: openchrome sis virtualbox vmware
 o input: vmmouse

The following minor drivers still fail to rebuild:

- x11-driver-video-sisimedia
- x11-driver-video-sisusb
- x11-driver-video-xgi

Waiting for you to test on more real HW...
Mainly : fglrx
