Yes, the i945 (and other chipsets) can improve from this. I have an i945
patch in the queue to implement this, that will come shortly. It was
kind of urgent to get the generic, infrastructure parts of the patches
public before they bit-rot.

Sorry for the inconvenience and happy valentines day (it's a bit late
for this timezone but I didn't wake up until 30min ago)
