     48          <para>[renodr] - Add a patch for xf86-video-ati that fixes various
     49          performance regressions and allows for the driver to build with a
     50          future version of xorg-server. This also allows users of ATI graphics
     51          cards on SysV systems to be able to run GNOME and KDE Plasma 5 again.
