[SOLVED] xf86-video-intel (sna) 2.20.9 crashes during xrandr operation

Hello All!

I noticed a kind of serious problem the other day: running

xrandr --output HDMI2 --rotate inverted

will cause a seg fault and crash X.  Here's the message that will be left in
your terminal:

0: /usr/bin/X (xorg_backtrace+0x36) [0x560366]

Segmentation fault at address (nil)

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting

This happens to me on a lenovo X220T.  I also have a lenovo U350 (not sandy
bridge), and that works fine.  Can anyone else confirm this so I can get a bug
report started?

A few notes:
* Reverting to the 2.20.8 driver fixes the issue.
* It doesn't matter which screen I rotate, or if I have externals connected at
  all.  xrandr seems to always crash.
* My kernel is slightly outdated (3.4.9-1), due to some other X220T issues:


*EDIT*: searching a little harder discovers this bug:
Which I think is the same thing.  I'll try to help them out...

*EDIT2*: Sorry for all the noise!  I think this issue is resolved upstream:
I'll mark this as solved.
