Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 and Intel graphics

I have a laptop with intel graphics built in, and I experienced a bad performance when I upgraded to Jaunty. This problem has been discussed multiple times in ubuntuforums and other blogs. Well, following the article http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=NzIwOA and installing afterwards kernel 2.6.30-rc2 performance was incredibly good again, at least as it was when I had Intrepid 8.10. This pre built ubuntu kernel is in http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.30-rc2/ I had no option but to try it or downgrade, and actually it worked.
